Model kits make great gifts - no matter if you are young or old !









Photoetch has become an important part of scale modeling in the past few decades.

Photoetch parts can have very fine details, and can be extremely small. With modern CAD work they can be developed quickly and manufactured in large quantities.

Photoetch parts and sets are available for almost any kind of model - from cars, ships, aircraft, figures, and many more types of projects.

Most Photoetch parts begin as a flat piece of metal. This requires you to bend them in various ways to have boxes or shapes to fit precisely on a particular model.

You need specialized tools to do this work, especially if the photoetch is steel rather than the softer brass products.

Shown here are also some tools to help with wire bending, and small projects of metal forming.
