J21 Cab Roof

A closer view of the J21's cab roof mentioned yesterday. I think the two photos, especially if you compare the thickness of the original in the second photo with the replacement, the difference is obvious. Well I hope so anyway!

This isn't a criticism of the Alexander Models kit at all - it is simply a limitation of the whitemetal process. Very thin parts are possible but are very vulnerable. However a brass replacement, of laminated construction in this case, is much stronger comparatively so not only looks better but is more durable.
