This Ruler is a great little tool for anyone wanting to scratch build or modify their model kits. It is useful for checking dimensions on drawings or scaling photographs to match your armor kits and figures.
Imperial and metric units are etched into the surface and you can use it as is, or use conte crayon, wax pencil or paint wash to the etch for more contrast. Being clear, it has the advantage of being able to be laid right over a part of a drawing or photo and still see important details. The hard edge of the plex is also useful for drawing and scoring lines on your model as it is a little bit flexible and able to conform to some model surfaces. We also offer this tool in etched wood at less cost.
This tool ships free in an envelope.
