Hi Alan. From reading various threads and webpages it would seem a key thing to amend on the Parkside kit are the side handrails. The diameter quoted in drawings is apparently the internal diameter of the pipe used not the external. The external should be somewhere around 1.25mm. The wire provided in the kit is apparently getting on for half that and therefore looks far too weedy. The other big learning points seem to be that the handrail wire bending diagram is undersize (repeated photocopying?), so make your own measurements, and that the floorboard support brackets are easily broken so best replace with some brass. Won't be starting mine for a while but will be interested to see how you get on.
