I did everything back to front and bought the PE set before I got a Gearing..

The Flyhawk set came up on special at one of the hobby sites on Ebay and I got it as I knew one day I would build a Gearing. There are six PE frets in the box and brass replacement barrels for the main armament. And the missing railings.

Also interesting is the fact that instead of using the decals in the kit for the anti-slip Flyawk have included these areas as etched brass. WIll be interesting to see the effect this has.
