Can anyone please tell me if the material used by Part can be soldered.
Ok, i admit it, i cannot solder to save my life, but i am trying to solder some 1/72nd scale tracks and have been unable to get the solder to flow on the damn things.
I have been using a 15kw iron and everyday 0.8mm flux cored solder. I heat up the joint to be soldered but when i offer some solder to the joint it repells the solder. By that i mean that the solder "balls up" on the end of the wire.
Is it the Photo etch material or am i doing something wrong?
I suspect i may have to use a higher wattage iron or a lower melting point solder. Can any one p
