Thanks Bruce!Model building has been my hobby for a long time, so I use styrene for a lot of detailing and props, especially if budget and time is limited. It's easy to work, bonds well with MEK or other "hot" solvents, has good structural strength and holds paint really well.
All the styrene detailing on this project was cut with an Xacto blade and a steel ruler. All the circular pieces were cut with an Olfa circle cutter. I bought a 2'x4' sheet of 1/16" styrene from the plastic supply place and just score and snap off the bits I need.
Awesome project! Styrene is a great choice of material, I used to make architectural models with it. Are you milling it to size on a rotary table?
