This is an indispensable asset in any model building kit. It is always a must to make sure you get the highest quality otherwise you wouldn’t be wrong to get any building done.

Xacto Knife:

This is another staple in any personal kit. The knife serves multiple purposes from basic scraping to removing of excess parts.

Nail clippers/Sprue Cutters

Sprue cutters supplement the Xacto knife through providing a solution for cutting plastic model sprues. In the case where Sprue cutters are a bit too hard to get, Nail clippers can save the day and perform to near efficiency.


This plays a commendable role in fine tuning the framework in the case where you have gaps and seams. Putty works just perfect in maintaining the integrity of the surface in conjunction with sandpaper and the painting process.


It is hard to imagine modeling without any form of painting. This is what really enables the model to stand out and appeal to the crowd. Always visualize and decide beforehand which color scheme you need and follow through the process in a meticulous way.

Sand paper

Sand paper is the essence of refining and fine tuning of the model parts. It is hard to have a sleek and beautiful surface without the use of sand paper. It exists in different grits which are basically grades of sanding you choose from depending on the degree of molding you need.

Paint Brush/Spray Can.

This is another obvious need as it goes along with the paint. You can opt for a Spray can or a paint brush, it all comes down to your preference. The key is in getting the highest quality you can find. Always go for the most authentic models from manufacturers who have a good track record to show for it. Online review sites come in handy to expose the actual flaws actual users are facing concerning the models.
