    • The Bug is an excellent photo etch bending tool
      I recently purchased "The Bug" from Showcase Miniatures and it arrived just days ago. I am amazed at the exceptional high quality of the machining utilized to create the aircraft grade aluminum head and base. The spring-loaded four direction rotating head is strong and precise and I am confident that it will last my lifetime. I model in both 1:87 railroading and 1:700 ships which often have a number of micro-tiny photo etch components. In the past, I have utilized other photo etch tool products that have been less than satisfactory in bending these 1:700 parts. My first use of The Bug was to bend and manipulate the one piece photo etched 1:87 rail-bicycle manufactured by Hauler, Czech Republic. Multi bends in various directions are required to convert the single part into a 3 dimensional model. The Bug with its various fingers made this project a breeze. I highly recommend this tool!

      I have been looking for this tool for many months as they either out of stock or over priced in eBay.  Happened to find showcaseminiature.net.  I am so glad.  Quick, reliable shipping.  Price is fair.  Most important amazing customer service.  Highly recommended
