The Holly Scribers: A New Type Tool for an Old Job

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

 

I picked up a couple of the new Holly Scribers at the IPMS Nat's in Phoenix last year for testing at the old work bench.

After using them on 2 consecutive models I have to say these scribers are awesome!

They come in three different widths of 0.10, 0.15, and 0.20mm.

Here's a link to the info page on MPS:

Thanks!

Hiya - which width do you think is the most applicable to 1/32 scale subjects? Would like to try one but unsure which to go with to start....

I've used the 0.20mm Holly on a 32nd -109 I'm working on and it seemed spot-on width-wize :)

I am :)

I'll be putting a scribing article out soon that incorporates the Holly and Needle-point scribers.

They've been on my bench for a while and I really like how they handle.

Thanks and best!

Awesome!

Thanks for the feed back.

Are you using the t.15 or t.20?

I'm using the t.20 on a 1/32 -109 and really liking the results :)

I tried the .15 then ordered the .2 and that seems good for 1/32 as you noted. Looks uneven in the pic but that is just as I am having to use the panel liner color to be able to see what I have done on the white plastic and its a bit messy. I have a few scratches to fix as well.

Nice!  :)

When enlarged, the inscribed lines look sharp and crisp.

So glad it's working for you!

Thanks for the pic.

Best,
