For a latest project, I;ve got some relatively thick styrene/plasticard sheets to cut things out of. It's reasonably thick (1.5mm) so not something you can just slice out with a knife (at best you can get a decent scoring on it).
The trouble I'm having is that the parts I need to cut out are curved, and it's quite hard to just snap those out once I've scored them in without breaking the whole piece.
Can anyone offer any advice on an alternative that won;t require buying a complicated or expensive electric saw?

Thanks.

Buy fret-saw, its not expensive. If you are doing terrain thats ideal tool. Electric is kinda easier, but this will work too and for much less.
