Dear Sir Please advise me "How Free" this is, as my Computer Caught a Cold recently when I downloaded a FREE programme, and it was plagued with adverts and rubbish?? I am sorry to sound negative. Kevin

Not sure which "Free" thing you're talking about Kevin. :hmm  Most highlighted items in this thread are "links", not programmes.   They'll just take you to an article or thread about Scalescenes and/or card modelling and are completely safe.

There are plenty of "Free" programme downloads available via the net about all sorts.  Yes, there are risks with some of them unless you know where it's coming from.

I presume you do have a good virus checker and malware blocker installed - if not, you need to do that almost before you turn on your computer. 

There are free anti virus programmes and there are those you pay for.  Good free ones include "Avast" and "AVG".  Certainly AVG, and probably Avast,  do have a "paid for" version that offers extra bells and whistles - I pay for my AVG mainly because I also run a buisness via the computer -  but they're not absolutely necessary.

It was unfortunate that you drew the short straw before but that is in fact, quite rare - provided you take sensible precautions.

Opening links attached to an e-mail are of course, totally different animals and there, you do need to be careful.  Unless you're sure the e-mail came from someone you know (and can confirm it's from them), don't open the attachment !!!!  If you're suspicious, obtaining confirmation that the sender did attach something is very easy - just drop them an e-mail direct from your contacts list (don't use the "Reply" option), and ask them. :thumbs

Hi All Very fine modelling, and no doubt a lot of interest created, but, has anyone considered using the "Maun Safety Rule"?? the M cross section rule, which is handy for protecting ones finger tips from a sharp blade??
Kevin

I have one Kevin but I've never used it for modelling.  It just feels a little "clumsy" somehow ..................:roll::roll:

I bought one at an exhibition some time back, but when i used it i found it had a slight curve on it.  Probably the way it was stored before i got it.  So really not any use.  I now use the steel straight edge that came with a set square ,seems the best i have to use at the mo .  I notice the latest set squares have aluminum straight edges ,again no good for running the scalpel along.
What do other members use?   Any good ideas out there lads?

I use standard 12" & 6" steel rulers and also a thicker steel ruler that came from an adjustable set square, it helps to keep the larger knife blades straight as the height of it is higher than the bevel on the knife.

The above posts (Posts 1 - 7) have been moved (by Petermac)  from Chubber's "Modelling the Scalescenes Way".

They are off topic and we would like to keep that thread as clean as possible please.
