Don't know, actually. I never wrote it down. But I sent my extra to Morten Jensen. When he receives it I'll ask him to measure it. The style, as noted on the website, is called stud-link.

.005" sheet styrene.
Should i sand down these doors and >apply the evergreen plastic, or should i just stick the >plastic over the existing molds on the hull ?
Yes, I cut off all the doors with a chisel-tip X-Acto blade, then sanded the remainder flush with the rest of the bulkhead.

Yes, absolutely. Every painted surface on my model is finished with Dulcote.
>What exactly did you use for the plastic prep solution ?
Testors and Polly-S both make a plastic prep solution in a pink bottle called, appropriately, Plastic-Prep.
