A quick look around your local model store or online will reveal hundreds of tools for model making but you don’t need all of them to get started.

Here are some suggestions from howtomakeadiorama, veterans of model making.

  • Wood glue (make sure it is paint & stain compatible),
  • Paint & brushes, etc. for the materials,

  • Utility knife,
  • Saw,
  • Pin vises for making very small holes
