Re: Your preferred method of prepping photo etch ?
I usually soak my pe frets in dishwashing liquid rinse and hang up to dry over night. Then I soak them in paint thinner and let that dry over night. This has always worked for m. I mostly work in 350 scale and larger.
I've almost exclusively used fine grit sanding paper & sanded in one direction, versus back n' forth, as to not damage parts.
I have the USS LANGLEY CV-1 in my posession (Loose Cannon, 1:700), which is making me re-think my sanding method for this kit....
Enter vinegar. How long to set brass (or stainless) in vinegar to get some "tooth" into the surface ? And how to wash it up afterward ? Is washing after vinegar even neccessary ?
Opinions are always greatly appreciated- and have a great weekend, all y'all !! From me all to you all, y'all....🚬😎
