After watching a various build videos of different ships i hsard the people building mentioning these rubbing down sticks to smooth edges etc and smaller objects..

So i had a look around online as there isnt a local model shop near to me and i thought im not paying those prices...

Then i remembered that the missus does her own nails etc and uses rubbi g down boards so after a look i bought these below...

Now there are single packs of emery boards which all 3 cost a tad over £3 from bodycare in the womens nail section..
I got 4 large, 2 medium, 8 small......
Bargain.

This is something I use too, they're just as good as any sanding boards available from model outlets and they do cost a lot less too.. Very useful things to have in your tool box....Cool Cool Cool
