This small brass PE kit is packed in a zip-lock bag attached to a peg hangar which protects the item. It consists of one fret with two identical fence sections. The fence is 0.2 mm (just under 1 scale inch) thick with slight raised detail on the out facing side to give some dimension. Removed from the fret they are 35.6 mm tall (4.08 scale feet) and 43 mm wide (4.9 scale feet) You need to fold over a small section at each end to attach to a fence post (not included). Plastruct square posts will work for this. There are bolt heads etched into the edge to add realism.

Removing the parts from the fret was very easy. The website recommends a PE folding tool to fold over the bends and this is probably a good idea. I used a straight edge with a flat edged X-Acto blade and had some difficulty. In working with these, the finials at the top of each rail are easily bent, but the brass is resilient enough to bend them back without permanent damage.

I sprayed them with a single coat of Tamiya Gloss Lacquer.

These would be useful anywhere you need wrought iron fencing. They are listed as 1/35 but could be used with 54mm figures as well. You will need to add fence posts unless you place on section kitty corner at the edge of a base.

Thanks to Matho Models for this sample.
