The parts list is included with the 6 sheets of A4 that make up the instructions. Not for one moment did I even think that there would be anything missing, but I did need to get a feel of that brass.
Three very clean frets - not that my photography in this room helped show them to their full glory but you get the impression of them being well laid out with nice fine fret tabs and just about enough to hold everything in place. I'm excited already
Most, if not all the parts are numbered on the frets (though was caught out by a couple of numbers being skipped.
Then to my surprise - another fret in a separate bag - is that a bonus?
Other parts included:
a bag of assorted nuts, bolts and pins.
a bag of resin bits.
some short lengths of various gauge wire.
Yes, I know I hate mixed media kits. so what am I doing with this one .... I would have preferred white metal or cast parts ... but if that is all that is wrong with this kit I suppose I forgive.
The instructions are continuous text rather than stepped and there is no exploded diagram of parts. I am aware of the opinion of the kit maker and others that this is not required and that a scale CAD diagram will suffice with some picture research. But I just prefer to have everything, having made a few clumsy errors in the past on building things the wrong way round. We do not all have access to piles of reference books or photographs of the prototype.
Anyway little I can do until the post arrives - other than read the instructions again ... and again ... looking for catch-outs.
So it is back to try and make sence of the instructions.
