Re: Scratchbuilding a car in styrene

+1 for score and snap to CUT styrene.

For making parallel GROOVES in styrene, I use a set of photoetched tools called an "Scribe-R" from RB Productions. Pricey, but these two toothed scribes come in an array of gaps, and allow far better results that I can make otherwise.  Found them on ebay.  Go light and let the tool do the work.  

Luckily, I've rarely needed to make an entire sheet with such.  Mostly I use them to clean up reefers after cutting off molded grab irons prior to installing new ones.
