First and foremost welcome to the SOS family! We are glad you found us! Please enjoy! if you don't mind, we would love to see your work, and it would even better if you start your own build log ;) You can start your own build log here (see the link below), choose what is more appropriate for your build.


As for your question, one way to cut across the grain without leaving a frayed edge is to tape surface with painter scotch tape, then cut. Use the saw with small teeth.
I hope this ill help.

Greetings, toma. Depending on the size of the desired cut, a feather-edge file might work for the job.
Good luck and Happy modeling. :)
