I am making the deck furniture for my MS Bluenose 1:64 scale.  At this size a fair amount of detail shows.  The plans call for a reasonably contoured molding around most of the structures. 


Apart from grinding down a razor blade does anyone have alternative methods for consistent production of a contour on these relatively small pieces?


Do I need to abandon the basswood from the kit and use a harder wood?

Thinking outside the box, you can create moldings with wire or other round stock. Glue two pieces of naked wire of slightly different diameters, shoulder to shoulder, up against the edge you want the molding on. Not so good for corners. but easy to get quick results as long as you plan on painting the surfaces involved.
