Great for modelling but make sure you cover it up when not in use!!!
on 6 March 2014
I bought this for painting miniatures and the clarity provided by both the light and magnifying lens enables me to pick out so much detail on my models. The lamp doesn't emit much heat, apart from the box on the arm, which can get very hot after prolonged use.
Despite this being a great product, it is after all a mangifying glass and can therefore be quite dangerous. I woke up yesterday morning to discover smoke filling my flat. I ran into the study where the strong morning sunlight had caught the magnifying lens just right, and incredibly managed to set fire to a coat I had slung over my office chair! The coat was ruined, the chair a little charred, but thankfully the damage was relatively minimal. Obviously that incident was my fault entirely, in future I'll make sure I keep the magnifying glass covered when not in use, or at least keep it way of the sun's reach.
