Make rearview mirror faces from leftover sprues

Tip: I have used leftover photoetch sprues to make rearview mirror faces.  

I get the correct shape and size by applying masking tape over the kit mirror, transferring that to the photo-etched sprue, and cutting and filing the piece to the final shape.

I then glue the piece onto the kit mirror, and a realistic mirror face is complete.

It’s easy – and better yet, it’s cheap. It also shows that we shouldn’t throw any model stuff away.
