And very nice as well especially as the brass parts can tarnish and finger mark.

Yours looks really very nice indeed. Hope you enjoyed your build.
Happy Modelling

An admirable build; was anything done to preserve the brass finish?

Thanks everyone for your kind words. It was a very satisfying build...an extremely well made kit. I have to say, the only problematic part of the build was the shear weight and size. Very cumbersome toward the end. The biggest piece of advice I would give is this...I wore latex gloves throughout the entire process. My bare hands never touched it. Quite a pain...but well worth it in the end.
