What is Photoetch?

Photoetched parts are thick metal foils with portions eaten away by acid. A light-sensitive emulsion is covered with photographic negative and any unexposed areas of the emulsion are washed away. These areas can be eaten away by the acid. By properly designing the artwork, extremely detailed parts can be made.

Typically photoetch is used for cockpit detailing and other fine detail that is generally to small for injection or resin molding.

It ia also ideal for use as a light block in small or tight areas of a model that will be lit such as a grid or other area that would be difficult to mask effectively.

Also great for raised lettering and detail.
