Hand Held and Machine Tools

A large part of the fun of building models is the opportunity to use a variety of tools . We have been collecting specialized tools for several decades and in that time we have offered hard-to-find tools which were, in our opinion, indispensable for building models.

We are proud to announce that Model Motorcars has become an authorized dealer for EUROTOOL, a recognized leader in imported tools. And in keeping with our usual high standards, we will continue to offer only the highest quality available include pieces from Sherline, Wiha, Grobet, Facom to name but a few. We have come to see the collecting and using of tools to be a vital part of our enjoyment of this hobby and we hope these tools will open new doors of pleasure and accomplishment for you too.

Sanding Sticks for Tight Spaces and Tiny Corners

We’ve all experienced that situation when we’re at our bench and are working on a tiny part or need to get into a small corner to sand it smooth and just don’t have the metal or flexible file that’s right for the job. Model Motorcars has the solution to that problem with our new Sanding Sticks and Sanding Twigs.

Our extra-large stick sets com in 120, 180 and 220 grits and are perfect for getting a perfectly smooth finish across broad contours and tight corners alike. And for those really tight spaces you can use our sanding twigs to get a smooth finish on even the smallest parts and areas.

Our Sanding Twigs come in packs of 20. Each package includes fine, medium and coarse grits and each stick measures approximative one-eights inch square and about 6 inches long.

These are perfect for when you need to get a smooth finish on the impossible-to-reach surface.

The Model Motorcars Sanding Twigs are abrasive along two of the long edges so you can sand in small spaces without damaging nearby areas.
