First time builder's supply guide for Scratch-Building: Beyond the Basics

Think of this as a "First time builder's supply guide for Scratch-Building: Beyond the Basics Edition." The shopping list of supplies for the intermediate skilled, first-time foam board builder.

I'm opening a discussion about the tools and materials for first-time buyers that are advancing their build skills beyond the basics. Materials and tools beyond glue and tape. I'm hoping to create a list of the material and any tools that are the next step in construction. Materials like laminates and carbon fiber, paints and epoxies, soldering guns and air-brushes.

When discussing these things, please try to include any brand names and prices so the first-time shopper can be sure to buy the stuff that we know will work.
Since I am not at that level for my own construction skills, I hope a few of the respected veteran builders can get the discussion started.

Cheers, Stew
