I know the feeling - I either break something by hand or if I drop something and it is heavy, it goes right in the middle of a model.
We know you will fix it and make it even better than it was before - did you use " naughty nautical language" - hohohohhoho
I used lots of technical nautical language,
It does not do the model any good but I always feel better after a good rant

Don't rush -- I can hear Haddock saying it now.
Decided the best way with the shields was to use a slightly thicker green paper and LET IT DRY before cutting it, was then able to use the circle cutter and this has given (well to me at least) a better and more accurate  finish

Put this in the wrong place under Romans - brain turning to mush again

While waiting for Zaks ditty, some ideas for the shields.
Top row the disc cut from thin aluminium, and a hole cut in some paper/card. Middle row paper fastened to disc and bottom row paper cut at the edges of the disc.
Works OK but will have to make a lot to be able to choose the best, and will also try and think of another way to do it. Might try and fasten a bit of solder around the disc edge and see how that goes - suppose I could just paint a ring on the risc edge but would be best if it has a slightly 3D effect
