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.

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.
