Looks like some nice quality castings with the photo etch the build will have a good level of detail.

BigGrin Hi All
Those parts look well cast with the details, from there colour I have a suspicion that they are of the same type of metal that I have had in other builds.
If so I would recommend a good set of files to remove burs and casting marks as the metal is quite hard and will wear out files quickly

Andy, any suggestions as to where to purchase decent files on line, the model shop where I live closed down a couple of years ago and there aren't any places really close to look for these, cheers

Hear you go basically you are looking for swiss needle files to guarantee the file hardness.
