Table saw: 10 inch cabinet saw, not one of those little saws that set on a table top, Again find a second hand saw, 2 to 5 horse power and a simple fence is all you need. so long as the blade can be squared up and the fence can be adjusted true. rust can be overlooked, and belts can be replaced. One thing here to spend money on is the blade, carbide tipped 50 to 60 tooth spend $50.00 to $70.00. you will want two $50.00 blades not one $100.00 blade. One blade is either at the saw sharpener or ready to go the sharpener. point is a sharp lower cost blade is a lot better than dull $150.00 blade.
What you want to achieve is a small, glowing fire in the fire box. That fire should last, unattended, for 45-60 minutes, and the temperature should remain steady. During this 45-60 minute burn, you should preheat one or two sticks of wood on top of the fire box. This preheating will help the wood burn faster and produce less thick, white smoke (more on smoke color in a bit). When you add a stick of wood to the fire box, open the intake about halfway. This will give your fire a little breath of air. When the preheated stick catches fire, close the air intake back down to about one quarter.
I will discuss safety first. You should ideally wear chemical splash goggles while working around a car battery. Batteries can potentially produce explosive hydrogen gas which can explode and release sulfuric acid. Although this is very rare, it is important to avoid any sparking around the battery and wear eye protection. Always use prudence and common sense when working around cars.
I am not sure what scale architectural models are build to, but 1:200 does not equate to inches very well. 1/48th works out to 1/4-inch equals 1 foot, and 1/72 equal 1/6 to one foot. The scale should be divisible by 12 (i.e. 1/144th scale would be 144 divided by 12 which gives 1/12 of an inch equals one foot). You could always go with 1/192 (1/16 of an inch equals one foot), which is a popular scale for ship models. Another choice would be use metric where 1/200th would work fine.
One of the most useful devices that I have chanced upon has been the battery booster packs. This is an ideal item for any survivalist to keep in their bug out vehicle. The power packages can be readily purchased through any of the department stores such as Wal-Mart's or from just about any auto parts supplier. I found an exceptionally good one online at all-cordless. This unit it not only a battery booster pack but also a compressor and an emergency work light.
Another thing you will need is a compressor to power your airbrush. Some artists are scared of air compressors because they look complicated and too mechanical. Please don't be scared! Once you have purchased one and tried it out with your new air-brush, I can guarantee you will never want to go back. There are so many things that you can do with air that you cannot do with a regular paint brush. It will open many doors for you.
