F.A.Q. - What are Photoetched Parts and How do I use them.?
Photoetched Detail sets consist of small pieces of steel, brass or copper, etched with various chemicals. Because plastic is fragile, it can not be made thin enough to represent very detailed parts etc.
These Photoetched details are used by just about all experienced modellers to give a realistic finish to the models
We recommend using CA (super glue) or Epoxy Glue to attach the parts, we recommend using one of the various Cement Dipping Sticks to apply the CA to the part and kit.
We have many specialist tools for use with photoetched parts, such as Diamond Files, Scissors and Folding/Bending Tools
