    Hello,

    I show you some photos of my next project. It is a 75 mm vignette (10x10x20cm) with a Moor guard. The figure is from Figone.

    Mobo, what tools do you use for cutting and forming the plastic sheets ?

    Theodores. I use simple tools, a non-slip ruler and a square. For cutting coarse Stanley knife and the rest an operation knife for the fine work. For the round parts I use a drill with various sanding rounds. Mobo

    Τhank you Mobo. I was wondering if there are any "special" tools for curving the plastic.

    Like it and a really good setting (you could swap figs around for photo-shoots?).

    Just one observation: I'm not convinced by the shape of the arch. I'd prefer a pointed or a half round one, but even if ovoid, it doesn't seem right to my eyes.

    Some useful refs and ideas on decoration here:

    At first glance I thought this might be another piece by Nelly Auffret, and although NS-Prod's stuff is good, this will
    clearly be far better. I don't know whether you intend to feature the kind of detail shown on Figone's website for this
    particular figure - if that is indeed your plan, then the finished piece promises to be utterly spectacular.... can't wait !
