Photo Etch Maine

Recommended Posts

If this is not the location I am sure the moderaters will put it in the right place.  I am looking for a photo etch set that I can use for my 1/250 model of the USS Maine.  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Well, I have a partial set.  I think you may have trouble finding this, though, since it appears HMV are going wholesale on over to laser-cut detail sets.  Frankly, the laser-cut sets are far easier to deal with.  The brass parts have to be prepped (degreasing plus acid etch), primed, painted, cut out (carefully!), formed, assembled, and then touched up -- it adds up to a lot of work and a lot of hassle.  I also have the PE sets for Undine, Emden, and Victoria Louise, but I will probably replace those with the laser-cut sets, if I ever get around to building any of them (I already have the laser-cut set for Emden, and it is very nice!).  Your best bet to find a PE set, if you're absolutely set on getting one, is probably to dangle an ad at Paper Modelers.
