IPMS(UK) SEAM SCRAPER
Online sales of IPMS Seam Scraper tools have been suspended until after Scale ModelWorld 2018 in November. The Seam Scraper will be available at Scale ModelWorld, while stocks last. We will re-open online sales on 1st December 2018
You may have seen this sort of tool before, but these have been designed and manufactured in the UK to our own specification.
- Want to remove seams off gun barrels? – some of the smaller radius profiles will be ideal
- Need to smooth the joint lines on a fuselage? – the larger profiles will do the job for you
- Have a right-angle that needs to be reinstated? – this tool has the angles that you’ll need
The 0.25mm stainless steel tool is roughly the size of a credit card. The metal is robust enough and the edge sharp enough to gently scrape away the offending seam whilst minimising the risk of damage to the curve or angle kit parts.
The tool has a flat metal profile and each edge is profiled, incorporating a series of different radius curves along with several commonly used angles. Using the appropriate curve or angle, you can smooth off seam lines and joint lines on plastic models without damaging the existing curvature of the parts.
The Seam Scaper can also be used to reinstate the curve or angle of a part if it has been damaged or if you have filled a join or an imperfection in the part.
