Really good work here, Leon! Those PE parts comes out greatly and it is a joy to watch. I guess, diving more into this madness, needs an etchmate! When I think about parts having only minor dimensions and need folding in 5 directions, hell, doing this with fingertips and a ruler will be a deathmatch!
Making good progress Leon! As for handling PE, it's amazing what you can accomplish with a pair of self-locking tweezers, a fingernail, or other tweezers/pliers to bend photo-etch parts. I usually only go to a bender when I need to bend long shapes cleanly like boxes or similar for example. Always good to have the tool options available but don't feel like you have to get one just to get one...
True Leon! The Carpet Monster always has a refined taste for PE! The key to help prevent that is to get smooth tip tweezers...that helps reduce the odds of it going into another dimension. Toothed tweezers are from the devil when it comes to PE.
