Key Model World’s editor at large lists his ten favourite modelling tools and explains why they're his must-have items.
During any modeller’s lifetime they will amass various tools to aid with different tasks. Some are seldom used, while others are staple items employed in almost every session. I’ve been building kits for almost 50 years.

As the years passed and my skill levels and confidence blossomed, I began to rely on a wider range of implements.
