Can you guys list the ways you make your own scale accessories? I'm looking for a nice way to decorate my rig without breaking the bank.

Styrene. There's a bunch of threads in this subforum for inspiration.

I’m new to scratch building and am starting with accessories, too. To be honest, the easiest thing for me to do was get a bag of Evergreen Odds and Ends, a bottle of MEK, and a fresh hobby blade and wing it! There’s no wrong way to do it. Once I get better at using the materials I’ll invest in a wider variety of styrene. I’m terms of what to build, I was inspired to start by one of the videos on the SBG YouTube channel—I think it was on of the TRX4 budget build videos—when Matt pulled out a few bits of styrene and made windshield wipers in just a few minutes.

I might just 3d print my accessories, I'm planning to get one pretty soon. I'll see what I can do. I've actually never heard of evergreen, I've always ordered my styrene from Plastruct.
