I was going to recommend that as well, I’ve got an handheld that takes 3 AAA batteries and my ratio of broken bits dropped significantly

Ken,

You should invest in a motorized drill for small bits. I haven’t broken a bit for three or four years. I use a Holland can motor outfitted with a small chuck. I use a 9v battery for power.

Really nice.

Again I like the body FCR which appears a more "rusty" color.  As I am confined to acrylics I'll have to do some research to match. I need to differentiate foreign road cars from the darker SP FCR that I have been using. 

Here it has taken me at least 3 weeks since I started an Tichy P&LE rebuild kit and I am at a point where I might assemble the body. 72 grabiron holes drilled taking at least 15 #78 drill bits.
