Hello everyone


I am currently working on a wood model boat kit, I have removed the work hold tabs, from the 3mm plywood sheet parts, and ready to finish up removing what is left behind of the tab parts remaining. Any expert advice experience for best tools to use to do the job right as for good clean results would be appreciated

   My tool of choice for that is the Veritas low angle thumb plane but if you do not have one or wish to spend out 45 a nice sharp small chisel will do the job as well providing you are careful.

The wood seems to be lite ply, if so, then you can't beat a good quality Scalpel.

A Swann Morton handle No.3 with 10a blades is ideal.
