Charles Models Caddy One

Charlie’s Plastic Models has produced four 3D printed caddies for modelers, each with different holes, receptacles, and spaces to accommodate various modeling supplies we use in our hobby.

My review sample was billed as the “Finishing Caddy” without Micro Set/Sol holes (for those bottles). The photo of this item from his website (www.charliesplasticmodels.com) shows it containing appropriate items like panel washes, Solvaset, cotton swabs and brushes [Photo 1]. I saw another great possibility for my sample and turned it into “Gluey Louie” by loading it with more basic tools to stick one bit of plastic to another: two kinds of liquid cement, CA, and applicators from The Glue Looper. [Photo 2] tweezers and small clamps. This may not be exactly what it was intended for in the first place but boy, it works for me.

I suspect that all four of CPM’s Caddy designs are pretty flexible and suitable for most model hobbyists. This sample retails for $10.00 and may be ordered online---it’s offered in black, white, or gray.

Great product, recommended to everybody. Thanks to Ian Hessing, USMC veteran and Charlie’s Plastic Models’ “CEO” for the design of these cool items, and thanks to IPMS/USA for allowing me to review this one.
