Tip of the Month: Valve cap air cleaners

Valve cap air cleaners
Our Tip of the Month is really simple, but really slick. It was sent in by Observant Modeler Chris Low, and is one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” tips that we just love here in the Workshop. Here’s Chris, in his own words:

“I enjoy finding ways to use everyday items for detailing models. I work where I can get tire valve caps on a regular basis, and the ones I get have an interesting cross-hatch pattern on the top half. I cut the bottom half off, and it is a match for a small chrome air cleaner. In scale, the ones I have measure out six to eight inches around. The height is determined by where it is cut.”
