Then when you take the model off the scale the scale will show how much the models weighs in a negative number. It displays in lb,oz, or kg, has a tare button and the price is right.
You are a genius...that is a great idea. There are many of these out there, I'm sure there is a version that will do a "weight max peak hold". Another good low cost tuning tool...
