MG Aile Strike RM

Hey guys GGD here! I haven't been feeling very well the last few days, so hopefully this WIP isn't too riddled with spelling errors.

I'm building this kit as a part of a tool review for a bunch of Excel Hobby blade products. I'm fairly far in the painting process at this point with only the grey sections of inner frame left.

Side Cutter Comparison Xuron Professionals vs Tamiya Sharp Pointed

This set of Tamiya side cutters were widely considered to be the best set of side cutters on the market. Let's see how they stack up to another set of well regarded side cutters.

Before you leave a comment telling me to get a pair of Mineshima's God Hand nippers, don't worry I have a pre-order down on a pair; I will do a comparison with those when they arrive.

Onto the comparison:

Clearly there are some differences in the physical characteristics of two side cutters.

The smaller cutting blades can definitely provide an advantage to squeezing into tight areas.

If you're interested in either set of the nippers featured in this post consider purchasing them through the link featured here. Every purchase helps me to hold contests and giveaways!

Tool review Xuron 2175ET Professional Sprue Cutters Initial Impressions

I am always on the lookout for new tools to make the modeling process faster, easier or more comfortable. This set of cutters caught my eye on Amazon due to their price. Xuron side cutters have the reputation of being inexpensive but very good quality; so I was surprised to see a set of their cutters priced around $20. After reading all of the reviews on Amazon I decided to pick up a set of my own to test, I wanted to see if they lived up to the hype.
