In case anyone missed it....

Hello again everyone,

It's hard to believe how fast these months go by sometimes!  Here we are again with another newsletter and some great new articles!

PTHYCRPG is back, this time with another look at some more old Soldiers:

I try out a mod idea I got from NKB:

And I push my yellow Compact to the limits and am thrilled to see it asking for more:

Ptisuisse answers the age old question of what to do with a broken blade:

Lastly I get a bit nostalgic with a look at an old friend:

I've got some neat stuff planned for next month, so stick around- there's lots more where this all came from!

Thanks Grant,
I just received a NIB Silvertech Climber from an epay dealer for cheap and I mean cheap. So I am going to give this a try. What about removing all of the paint on the scales with a mild solvent and not melting the scales. Then painting them all yellow??? Now I can have a yellow scaled SAK Hmmmm!

It's possible I suppose- I did this on a junk set of scales as an experiment.  If I was to do it on a good set of scales, ie ones I was going to use again, I'd use my Dremel and a wire brush rather than sandpaper.  Neil is the best guy to talk to about this as it was his idea that I stole.  I can't seem to find the picture, but he did one in blue that kind of looked like he stole it from Tron!

And, in case anyone is wondering why these scales were ruined in the first place, you can see why here:

I don't advise solvent.  The plastic is more likely to dissolve than the paint.  The paint is pretty tough actually, I seem to recall scraping most away with a blade before polishing up the exposed plastic a bit.  Quite a while back now though and the memory is hazy  :think: :)


I'm not taking any more mod orders at present, sorry.
