Hi again has anybody tried to etch brass using a set of brass they allready own like have it copied to film positive and apply it to sheet and etch away. I don't want to seem lame but when we are talking about say five models and at $19.995 per kit to apply said details BIg Bucks fast and spread out over say 100 plus models real Big bucks hell could buy one complete tank from government auction.
