  1. Hi Dave, I’ve just watched your YouTube video about 10 (11) essential tools for modelling. One thing I’d ask is, ahem, I’m now 51 and starting modelling again after a 25 yr break. The biggest difference is that my eyesight is now bollocks. Reading glasses just don’t cut it with the detail I now need . Any ideas regarding magnifying lenses on stands , or anything else.
    I’m a dentist and use loupes at work, but they’re so expensive I can’t justify having a set at home. ( I’ll get cheap tweezers though!)

  2. Hi Christopher, I can't really give you much advice on that, sorry. Luckily for me, I'm a bit short-sighted so I've been okay (so far) with close up detail work - I've not tried any magnifiers. Sorry mate, but welcome back to the hobby! Cheers, Dave

  3. Hey Christopher, I feel your pain. Two things I have that really help, are a visor type magnifier, and one of those bright LED ring lamps with the big lens on that you look through. I don't think I could cope without either of those, and the magnifier lamp is great in Summer because it doesn't make you sweat :-)
    Link below is just so you can see what I'm talking about.
