Thanks for the info on the parts. Was curious what they were made of. Being cast metal means that’s a real chore to clean up… you are doing a great job with this one!

I'm really interested to see what you do with pack 19 as they have got the exhaust system so wrong. It's terrible. At this point I'm actually quite gutted about that. One of the most famous parts of this vehicle - the bundle of snakes exhaust system and they have all the routing of the pipes completely wrong and there seems to be nothing we can do bar remodelling the entire exhaust manifolds
