Hi

I'm building trumpeter's sturer emil inclusive the Vouager PE set and I'm having a hard time bending the hinges of the fenders without breaking them.

Does anybody have some advise on bending these hinges.

In advance thanks

Erik

I dont know what the set is like, but have you anealed them? If not just heat with a lighter or stove or some heat source until it turns colour slightly. The metal should be more maleable and easier to bend. Hope that helps.
