Hi Nick, looking really nice ! I'm not a "rivet counter" but the screws on the kick plates on the stairs seem out of place when the rest of the kit so far is very good

I agree looks awful and oversized, Yet in the mag that came with part 1 they show a different screw in the picture, I might look into changing these to something else if I can, I haven't got my parts yet :(

I saw somebody on Facebook replace the screws with dress making pins. Looks a lot better, to me at least.
