    F3/F7 steps?

    Looking to replace stapladders/stirrup steps on some F3's and F7's. Dont want to cut them off some other shell, does anyone make a brass or etched part? Thanks!

    OK, I'm a dummy (like a 1960's F7B). I found 'em!

    I have been in your shoes and have used the Gold Metal Model styrups. I had to sand the insde of the shell where the styrups goe to get them close to the outside to look right then bend them a little where the attach.

    I mark the edge of Kato shells with a needle and drill out .020. Held with ACC, works fine.

    I've got an ABBA set, that was a lot of steps.
