Does anyone have any idea of a tool to make curves in plastic consistently.

Trying to make Tau vehicles so that type of curves. And hopefully even Tau circular tidewalls.

Thinking of setting up a my dremel so that I can do an inward curve on a plastic rod, but not figured out how to do an outward curve easily.

A bit off topic, but I did find what's called a Unimat mini machine tool. Was tempted, but not sure if it can do what I need.

The biggest problem with the reviews is the assembly and re-assembly when you want a different tool.

Anyone got one and can share their thoughts?
