MISAWA AIR BASE, Japan - U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Michael Nyugen, a 35th Maintenance Squadron aircraft structural maintenance journeyman, grabs a paint scraper created by the 35th MXS at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Oct. 4, 2017. The new innovation takes away from having to constantly replace and order parts while being more cost effective. A whole sheet of plastic can be created for about 100 dollars and lasts 10 times longer, saving the base $54,000 each year.
