Bending photo etched parts

Recommended Posts

Hello evertbody

 

Already had some great advice regarding obtaining photo etched parts for a 1/700 scale model of Revell's container ship, just need a little more if anyone can help.

 

Can anyone recommend a bending tool for photo etched parts of this scale, any particular make or size would be a great help as am new to all this.

 

Thanks once again

Pretty expensive these hold and folds (I have one my own), and hardly use it.

 

For most bends a simple toothless plier is sufficient. I use a plier like this to remove the burrs from the PE, to bend the smaller (and longer bends), etc... a real multi-function:
