So a friend of mine has been bugging me for days and weeks to give him a list of tools that I use to build resin figures. So here we go. Note that some of these tools are not necessary, but will make the building process easier; and so are a luxury. Quick and dirty list:

Pin Vise
brass rod
sanding sticks
magnets
epoxy glue
drill bit set
tamiya light curing putty
tamiya epoxy putty quick type
milliput (clay like consistency)
Mr Resin Primer
hobby knife
Dykes (cutting tool, get you minds out of the gutter)

I believe that a big part to working on kits is a well set up work area. When I first started building kits, I had a temporary work area; my tools were semi organized and simply thrown into boxes, random cups and strewn all over my temporary fold up desk area. The same area was used for painting when I got to that point with my kits. I had a temporary set up for about 6 years prior to moving to my current residence. With my new place, I was able to dedicate a single room as a workshop. More pictures and information after the jump.
