I’ve just been pointed at a silhouette cutter by a mate but at 200 sheets I’ll be giving it a miss I think!!!!
 
Final piece of ordnance arrived from Italy. I’ve disinfected it and it’s 2m away from me so I’m social distancing from it for two weeks

Tch!!! There’s always one...... :mrgreen:
Oi, you!! Why haven't you dumped your red-fucked avatar for the nice clean colour-restored one I put about ten minutes of my life into....?!
 
Need to get some gloss on these this morning and get the decals on next. These were a good investment. Quite pleased with the results

Question: what if he dumped his tanks on the last run and these are new tanks fresh out of the hold...?
Then they'd probably be white as they painted them red for Christmas
 
Decals next. Probabaly Sunday though as I want the clear to go off first

I have used a Roland Stika plotter to cut masks from Frisk, it was saved from going in a skip (probably because it isn’t USB), which is handy because £350 is a bit rich... I’ve also used a laser cutter, (but getting the settings right can be tricky)
though £185 will get you something that will engrave and cut plastic card as well as making masks.
