 Hi;

 Oh , boy, You are going to bomb on this. I bet. First off it's plain. It is anywhare from 8"x8" all the way down to 2"x2". I don't get used till very late in the project and then only on the outside of the Hull. I cannot be used without a partner, who's job it is to make me work. I am sold for linear treatment of things. Or homebuilt for just the one time. What am I?

"who's job it is to make me work "

The modeler?

In the pattern: Lots in my stash. But let's close out the SOD and do the 1/350 Enterprise I started a few years ago.

Hi, You were close. The modeler uses a Marker of some sort in a base clamp type stand to mark waterlines.
