Well, it's great to know it's possible to cut those shrouds that clean with just a pair of scissors. Maybe the smaller set of scissors is the key. I use a sharp set for this type cutting, and the cuts don't look 'bad' per se, just not as 'machine cut' as yours do. For that shroud, clean cuts are key to a nice matchup with the tank tubes.

It is easy to get small variations when using scissors free hand as compared to say using an xacto and a straight edge. But obviously one cannot use a straight edge for these scallops, but yours look almost like they had been cut with something other than just plain old scissors.

Thanks for the tip......I'll see how the smaller set works.
