Recently Masterpiece Models released several new measurement tools! I put together a quick review of the EZ Ruler and EZ Scale Rulers.

I like the look of the product, but I would have liked to see a metal edge down one side to allow the use of a knife to cut material without damaging the ruler.

There was a company that offered a 30cm/12 inch length ruler made of steel in railroad scales. It was fairly thin and somewhat flexible. I like the look of these but agree that something of metal would be less likely to be damaged with a hobby knife. It is still very nice to see this release.

Thanks for getting this one up Darren! I have had the chance to use them a number of tie since I received them...cutting up a bunch of white stuff with a #11. I have not seen any edge damage as of yet, I do have a rather steady hand while cutting, but there is always the possibility if wearing. They are acrylic based and thus a bit more resilient that typical plastic, but but care should probably be taken to ensure long lasting use.
