I haven't built a model car since I became old enough to drive one, but I stumbled on some Youtube videos of model builders, they have some really cool stuff I never had 40 years ago when I did build models. Has the wheels turning in my head...

Richard, I build model ships. You can ask me questions if you'd like.

I don't have any specific questions as of yet. Mostly, I'm curious if any model builders use similar tools/tecniques in fan restoration, and if so, are there any suggestions.

Well, I do use an airbrush when I build kits. I suppose that could apply to fans. Other than that, it really is a pretty different skill set. I work with putty and fillers at times to hide seam lines or make panel lines. It also requires you to be very good with tweezers and precision movement since most Photo Etch is very small and very fragile. Especially at the 1:700 scale I work in. About 95% of model building is patience and the rest is technique.
