I'm attempting my first extremely detailed piece or armor. A Stug B. Some of these brass bits are amazingly small!! While some has gone quite easily some is rather troublesome. I was just wondering if anyone had any tips they could share for working with PE. I have an hold-and-fold tool. Amazing tool if I do say so myself. Other than that any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you have some PE parts that require more than a little positioning, moving, nudging, coaxing or shoving into place, try using Future as an adhesive. This will give you a much longer set time than superglue which will allow you to fiddle around and get the part exactly where you want it. You can then go back later and hit the part with a tiny dab of thin superglue to ensure that the bond is totally bomb-proof.
I used this technique recently when attaching some tiny (1 mm) letters and numbers to a vehicle to prepresent casting foundry marks.
