I just purchased the Trumpeter 1126 Stryker and I git the Big Ed PE kit to go with this build. What I would like to know is any tips that will help me with this build and adding the PE to the models. I was looking over the instructions and it seems like there is a need to remove areas from same of the model parts so how do people do this without removing to much from the part.

Thanks for any help.

dremel/moto tools, sanding sticks, etc
look for ChuckW's build of the Me-410 in ww2 aircraft for some tips, inspiration and amazement

When removing the etch from its fret I like to put some tape on the back of the fret and then cut. The tape adds rigidity and allows the use of sharp scissors to remove the piece without the risk of either losing or damaging it..HTH
