This time, we are using Fujimi’s etching parts for Agano. So-called “dedicated etching parts” or “genuine etching parts”. There are some advantages of this special etching part. The biggest advantage is that the length of the handrail is matched to the kit, and the bending position is half etching 1 and it is easy to bend.
In the case of general-purpose etching instead of dedicated etching, it will be bent while measuring and cutting out with a divider. In the case of Agano, there are many bends only around the bridge, but even so, special etching makes assembly much easier.
The reason why the specially etched handrail is sober is that the folding line is vertical even if it is “inaccurate” when bending the handrail. For general-purpose etching, it is necessary to adjust the bending line so that it is vertical, and then use a special etching bending tool or fix it with a bender and then bend it with a metal block or a metal ruler.
I also installed boats and rails on the aircraft work deck. Equipped with No. 21 electric probe on the top of the bridge.
