Have you ever wanted a power sander for modeling, just like the 1:1 boys. Well now you can.

Buy a cheap battery powered toothbrush. Cut off the bristles with a fresh exacto blade. Stick some double sided tape to a small square of sandpaper. Stick this to the 'sanding' head and trim with sharp scissors.

Bingo, instant power sander which can get into surprisingly small spaces.

When you are on buy a couple of spare heads and fit fine, medium and coarse paper.
