The kits are quite good, but at not for the beginer, as there is a lot of work to do which is nearly scratch building as the kit is etches and whitemetal castings. The boiler can be supplied rolled if you ask but I think they generally come as a flat sheet of parts. The other thing is that the instructions are basic and assume you have built locos from etched kits before. If you read the brm, tony wright has agreed to write the instructions for one of the kits that he built as he had questioned the ace instructions being good enough to build the kit.

The kits do make up into good models and I have seen quite a few finished by experianced builders. One said he had used about 80% of the kit and made the rest from scratch!

hope this helps
