I've got a 4" on order with GreatModels right now. I thought that one would work best for me, but I was debating whether or not to go with the 2" version.

Looks great. Just a couple of questions? Who makes it? And most important - what did it cost? Got to have that before I go forth to do battle with the Chanceller of the Exchequer.

Jeff I bought the 4" vesrion last month. Not cheap, but considering the amount of PE I've screwed up in the past trying to bend it with craft knives and pliers, I'm sure it will pay for itself in the long run.

The 2" sure looks cute.

Woodbeck, take a look at the European site : as they have modified the model you own, maybe it's more complete in terms of use and I believe yours can be retrofitted if and when you feel it necessary. I saw the Etchmate and I own a Norwegian product but I never touched this one so I don't know further.

Thank you all for coming José

I just got the four-inch model. One of my better investments.

I second this sentiment. When I bought mine, it was the smallest one they made. Then I saw the 2", at first impulse, I think it would be a real handy device, but then if I think about the many times I've used my 4", I'm glad I've got the slightly larger one. Every once in a while I get to bending the side skirts of a tank kit and am glad I have one long enough to deal with the size.
