P-B-L has been around for as long as I can remember. For years I considered them a Sn3 supplier and importer. I discovered their paint line called Star Brand and liked it for airbrushing. Recently, I have puchased a few tools and found them to be good quality at a fair price.
I started to build up a pilot model for a new plastic kit and discovered that Testors liquid cement was doing much. It appears that they changed the formula to protect us from ourselves. The kit I am working on shot in ABS which is very widely used in the industry. At that point I decided that I needed Methyl Ehtyl Ketone (MEK). It is the forbidden modelers elixir here in the not so golden state of California. However, I did find that I can buy it from P-B-L in small quantities. Maybe there is a state called do Jefferson. There is no substitute for the real stuff. The parts were going together nicely.
While nosing around at P-B-L online store, I found a neat 4″ file that has a blank edge on one side and teeth on the other. The file in made by Nicholson and is first rate. It is very handy for filing down the thickness of plastic parts without damaging an adjoining surface.
P-B-L has a number of useful tools created by modelers for modelers.
