Looking to try out a little phot-etch for the 1st time.I have Dragon's new King Tiger also Aoshima's new cruiser Takao.
Would mission Models Etchmate 3-C be a worthwhile purchase,the promotional video they use makes it look effective,and some of the small photo etch in my kits look pretty daunting.

Any advice out there or maybe any alternate tool ?

I'm personally not too keen on the plastic... but then I have an Aluminum (home made) and have made several to friends.
