    Bumping this, as I'm positive there's no way I could have listed everything that people utilise in their Nerf Workshop.

    Cheers,

    I think you have covered everything I use apart from polish (for brass breeches) Cold weld (which could come under E.putty) and coffee

    My tools: Obligatory screwdrivers, ordinary pointy-nosed pliers (used for removing bulk plastic and shaping wire) Pocket knife (Cuts conduit & PETG, also tidies up the mess the pliers made), epoxy in a variety of colours and flavours, cable ties, string. Also a sanding sponge which I use to touch up my poor knife.

    I am not really a modder.
