Introduction
Wilder is a producer of model tools and paints for weathering. Tweezers TT 03 are advertised as rigged, non-corrosive, anti-magnetic, acid-resistant fine tweezers perfect for working with very fine details.

Tweezers TT 04
Tweezers (Straight, needle-tipped) TT 03 is packaged in a blister pack backed with an eye catching blue, yellow and black flat flat card. They make two curved tweezers and two other straight types.

These tweezers are light and small and fit well in my hand. It has needle-sharp tips - be careful! It takes slight pressure to bring them together. Finish is clean and the handles are coated with a dull finish that is easy to grip.

Wilder describes these as
    Rigged, non-corrosive, anti-magnetic, acid-resistant fine tweezers perfect for working with very fine details.


I show them in use attaching an HO (1/87) side view mirror to a car, air hoses to an HO gondola, and next to a human hair.

Conclusion
Wilder's straight tweezers TT03 is a useful tool. They will make it easier to grab tiny parts and maneuver those parts to inaccessible areas.

I recommend this tool as a useful item for modelers.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
