Default RE: Tools for the model shop - bandsaw/jigsaw/scroll saw?

ORIGINAL: desmobob

Thinking about buying a small saw for the shop.

What type saw do you prefer, and why?
I figured the scroll saw would have been the most popular.

I was guessing that in scratch building, the most time-consuming thing to cut would be plywood formers, which would require a scroll saw. But it must be wing ribs that make the band saw most-used by most modelers?

Delta has a 9" two-wheel bandsaw for $139. I haven't looked at Sears yet. I'm not really ready to buy one right now. After the holidays, maybe.

Thanks for your responses.

Good flying,
