What are your kits made out of?

Our kits are predominantly made out of metal - with the obvious exception of components like rubber tyres and canvas roofs. We use mainly aluminium. In general, steel is used for some drive components and thin sheet metal, whilst brass is used for some bushes and decorative components.

Can the models be left as bare metal?

Yes they can. Some customers choose not to paint their kits. However, some of the parts of the kit are mild steel and would need either an oil or lacquer coating to prevent them from rusting. All other parts can be left untreated as bare metal components.
