Hi all. I've just got this PE set from Lion Roar (1/16 German Insignia):

Now the belt buckles shown above need to have their edges folded at 90 degrees to fit the belts. The fold area is about 0.5mm. How do I do this effectively, and what tool do I use? Budget is a consideration for me, so can anyone make an economical suggestion?

If thats all the PE you do...then tweezers will be fine.

As a tip...I "hone" mine together with fine polishing paper to make sure the grip is even across the surface and that they are clean. Keeps a PE snack away from the carpit monster .

Natrally if you do larger detail PE on Kits then a tool would be OK...for this ?, only tweezers.

Er... what are 'decal tweezers'? I've just got regular ones that came off my Swiss Army knife.
