I'm planning to do some dozens of painted and trimmed bodies of one shape.
When I look at the Parma CP-Bodies they seem to be trimmed with a hot wire. Apparently this would save "some" time.
Are there any How-tos or pictures how to create the jig for this? Or a picture of a jig?
Or is there a different way that is also that fast? At the moment I'm using an already trimmed body over an untrimmed, mark the trimming lines with a sharpie and cut them with a scissor.
The body I'm speaking of would be the classic Parma Womp beetle. I plan to use the proxxon hot wire cutter thermocut 12E.
Thanks a lot for any input,
Lexan body trimming with hot wire
