Until now I didn’t wash the photo-etched parts, especially with detergent, the manual says that you had better wash it before painting. I think that there is no problem because I always use metal primers. Once, I wash it with a household dishwasher. I wonder if it will rust?
There used to be such a tool as an etching vendor to bend the parts of the AFV model. In order to work the photo-etched parts of the current ship model, it is not very useful for them. The only way is to work perseverance with tweezers and thinner pliers.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
