Hi Everyone.
Is there anyone out there who can give me any advice on forming (bending) and using Photo Etch parts.
I have never used them before.
I've just started my build of the USS Enterprise into Darkness kit 1/500 and as I've only been making models for about 7 months using Photo Etch parts feels a bit daunting and I really don't want to mess it up so any advice will be really appreciated.
Basically I need an idiots guide lol.
Thanking you all in advance.

Check out Paragrafix's videos on the basics. They're a bit older, but should be a good starting point.
