Photo Etching, Paperback


Photo etching in the form of electronic equipment printed circuit boards will be familiar to all modellers.

Less familiar is the application by model engineers of those same techniques to precision production of metal parts for all aspects of model making ranging from finely detailed grill work and artillery details to locomotive and traction engine emblems and nameplates.

Authors Brian King and Azien Watkin have developed photo etching techniques to a high degree of sophistication to enable Brian to build his Gold Medal winning marine models.

The design of items and the production of the high-quality graphics necessary are fully covered, as are both home and industry routes to producing the finished items in a variety of metals.
