Mission Models continue their commitment to
designing new tools for modellers with the release of their 2mm
The concept is simple - a 2 mm interchangeable
chisel bit connected to a solid stainless steel handle, encased in a
contoured rubber finger grip. The result is a very high quality,
durable and useful tool for modellers. The Micro Chisel is supplied
with a safety cap covering the razor-sharp tip, and packaged inside
a clear plastic tube.
This chisel will be perfect to get into nooks and
crannies that need reshaping or cleaning up. I cannot think of
another tool that is better designed for the job. It is certainly
more appropriate, more effective and less likely to remove
fingertips than a brittle scalpel blade.
I have already used the tool for a modelling task
that would have otherwise been very difficult to address.
I needed to remove a narrow wedge of solid plastic
from the join between the wing root and engine cowl on a
Messerschmitt Bf 109 model without obscuring surrounding detail.
Before the arrival of the Micro Chisel, I would have probably used a
rat-tail file or rolled-up sandpaper, but these techniques would be
tedious and imprecise, and would probably have eliminated nearby
The tool feels very solid in the hand, and the grip
is positive. I simply guided the tip forward, grazing the plastic
that needed to be removed. Very little effort was required to
achieve a fast, clean, precise result.
This tool will be helpful for reshaping and
sculpting many different materials, including plastic, resin and
It will also be ideal for removing mould seams and
Mission Models has delivered yet another excellent
tool specifically for scale modellers. The Micro Chisel exudes
quality, and this precision tool will have many useful applications
for modelling projects. Replacement tips are available, and I hope
that we will see different shaped chisel bits in the future too (eg
curved, angled etc).
