What worries me about these pewter/whitemetal kits is how much do the
final models weigh? With a plastic kit weighing in at about 30 grams,
your average loco can pull a reasonable length train of them, but with
heavier items that's not going to be the case. (Yes, I know that trains
containing flask wagons were/are fairly short so the above doesn't
apply, but there are other metal wagon kits for which I'd have thought
it was a consideration.)

The S kits one was rated better, i have 2 Genesis kits to build for a freind but i have to sorce the correct buffers from A1 railmatch. With the aid of the kit and photo's im scaling it up to 7mm its a lot cheaper to scratch build in 7mm
