Default Post your modeling battle wounds!

I know this has been done in the past, a few time, but they are always great. Post your worst injury or several injuries from modeling. Pictures are a plus, of the injury is great, of the scar is ok too.

Mine is probably the time I almost melted the skin on my pointer finger and thumb together with superglue and zip kicker. For you that do not know superglue dries using a chemical reaction that puts off heat, zip kicker speeds up the chemical reaction thus causing the superglue to put out all of its heat pretty much at once. I was about in tears it hurt so damn bad.

Oh man. If only, I did not hate my shit so much. I threw all mine away last year. But thinking about it now, they were pretty funny. Painting problems mostly.

I will tell you, most recent that I can't show you because the model wasn't mine. lol. A friend asked how he could remove the paint off his carnifex. So I'm like... thinner! Anyhow, the idiot left it in their for two weeks. Yeah. Stupid idiot got mad at me that his model became rubber. But whatever. lol You can imagine. Big scar just trying to help out an idiot.

I'm pre-programmed to do stupid stuff to myself, I've stabbed my hand with a scalpel (I'll post up pics of the scar when my camera is sorted)
put my hand in a puddle of hot glue after not realising I had left it on, that hurt, really, really hurt!
Sliced chunks out of my fingers and once drilled a hole through my finger nail, which also hurt quite a bit.

Various superficial yet painful nicks and cuts but nothing major. At the moment I'm sporting a tiny yet painful chafe on one finger joint... removing a building from a wooden board that had sand glued to it. The building came off along with part of my skin, thankfully it's nearly healed :-)

Gluing the tracks to my Baneblade with super glue ended up with my hands bleeding.

Cutting of parts from the sprues and I accidentally cut the entire nail of my middle finger, lol.

Stabbed myself in the eye with a brush, but nothing serious happened. No fucking idea how I managed to do that.

I was using my right hand to cut off a sliver of plastic from a model with a knife once. I'm a lefty so I wasn't handling it very well, and the knife pretty much cut to the bone.

Damn, nice scar. Comon I know there are more out there!

I learned at a young age, before hearing the tales that superglue was great for small cuts when I first started painting lol.

Not hobbying, really, but was sharpening my Leatherman, and stupidly, held the whetstone solid, and moved the blade.

3 hours later, removed the tool from the leg of the tool using it in A&E. I think the Nurse (Murse, actually he was male) decided to teach me a lesson and not use anaesthetic, using some bollocko excuse that to use either adrenalin or pain killer would loosen the capillary and cause me to bleed out. Thank fuck for the NHS, doing a job I wouldn't have had to sit scaring kiddies for in the entrance hall (I sat in a corridor seat especially until I got seen to quicker) for 3 hours. I did enjoy scaring the kiddies, but I think it was more to do with the face than the knife in the leg. It's quite usual in Liverpool.
