Did you 'freehand' your cut on the tank shroud? Such with scissors or xacto knife? The 'scallops' of your shroud look super-clean, almost like they were machine cut or cut with a die of some type.

I was doing some practice cutting on copies of the 1/70 tank shroud for the Estes kit, and with either scissors or hobby knife, it is hard to cut those curved scalloped areas cleanly.

What's your secret??
