Bending photo-etch.

Recommended Posts

All,

 

I am going to try my hand at ship building and I very much enjoy the scale effect given by using photo-etch. In the past building planes I usually used a very small piece of glass and a razor blade, as the parts were usually not long or wide. However, I notice that I will need to make larger bends on ship models, and far more intricate. I have seen the Hold & Fold, and I am thinking of getting one. Before I do that I would like your input on what works best.

 

Regards,

Jon

Jon,

I have bent 1/35 HVSS suspension fenders on Shermans and have had good luck with the razor glass options. Railings are more fragile and probably longer but I bet it is just as good. My friend has the MK IV and love it.

Hold n' Fold works great. If you want to make round bends, they have a tool for that too that's very useful. Check out The Small Shop website.
