  1. I got a panart hms victory 1/78 scale and have a question as how to remove the photo etched pieces from the metal sheet. I thought they can be removed by a sharp hobby knife but they seem to be stuck to metal sheet. Any advice is much appreciated.

      My question was regarding the stern gallery and side windows that are printed on one big metal sheet. It seems they need to be cut out using proper pair of scissors! I believe your kit must came with same metal sheet.

      Mine didn't come with metal etchings. Mine were laser cut into plywood. Look at mt earlier posts and you will see. The ones i git were terrible. You my have an older version of the Vic. My instruction talk about metal ones though.

      Ok. Thanks 

      you're eight mine is an older version etched on a metal sheet. I think I just use scissors as it is a very thin sheet of metal.

      Thanks again
