The 12 Caboose Saga, end steps

Nothing says Xmas in a childless household, like soldering caboose parts.
The kits comes with a very nice array of etched parts. And this morning, I decided to solder the end step units. Like everything in this project, not terribly difficult, just verging on tedious. What with 48 of these assemblies.
At some point I should think about the end railing assemblies. There's only 24 of those!
With the steps all soldered up, it's time for a quick wash, to remove any flux residue.
I'm now waiting for Lake Junction Models to send me the missing laser cut sheets. He mis-packed and left out a few key components, so the project is kinda stalled right now.
