Yes it is right. Why five? You meant for a first two cilinders, but there is a place for 4.1 :think:

According your pictures is 4.1 underneath 4.4, that's why I stated missing the rivets at 4.1 in my list of questions.

Woo hoo! SD45 has arrived (thanks Al!). This will be my first brass model and I'm sure I'll have a lot of questions. I'll start with the most basic: what's the best way to remove parts from the tree so the are no burs left and it doesn't get bent? Or do you just cut it off close and then file down the rest?
