  • How to work with photoetch


    I was wondering IF anyone here can give me advice /tips on how to work with photoetch, excuse the spelling.
    I have NEVER worked with it before. I would like to use it on some submarines BUT since the subs are R.C static diving, how do you keep from losing the detail? Also I saw one set of details applied to a working Torpedo that looked like the etch was soldered together, how is that possible and yet No damage from heat was seen on the torpedo plastic body?

    Any tips with pictures would be Greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance and to the U.S members Happy Thanks Giving and hope you had fun fighting your through Black Friday sales! I shop through my computer.
