Hi Robin,
I think it is an old myford 7 series - it's in my Grandad's workshop, he sadly died a few years ago but the family have kept it so I go home to use it. I'm sure my technique could be improved but I'm mostly going on what I remember him doing and also Brian King's book on workshop practice for ship modellers. For example I struggled to get the high shine finish on the brass which I suspect is due to going too fast or not having the tool properly sharpened.
It's a really useful tool to have access to though to up the level of the model - particularly as the armament is one of the things the eye is drawn to on any warship.
