Don't forget bamoo skewers.

I use those for rolling of parts that need a tight roll, but are too large for a toothpick.

They also are great for reinforcing long thin parts, i.e. rotor blades, or skids.

how about paperclips? you can really roll a small cylinder, enlarge holes..
sandpaper comes in handy for smoothing toothpicks for moving parts.....not really hard to get items!

Don't forget colored pencils (or even better, watercolor pencils) and felt-tip markers for coloring edges.

good suggestions both! i have added the paper clips, and I will go to the art supply for some watercolor pencils. they're a little expensive, but i think i can manage to budget them in.
