That&#39;s one of those &quot;So simple it&#39;s brilliant&quot; hobby tips that I never knew. I can&#39;t tell you how much time I&#39;ve spent trying to match particular shapes on models via trial and error and fiddly measuring when I could have just done the tape-and-cut method. Brilliant!<br /><br />20+ years of hobbying and there&#39;s always something new to learn.
