How big are the flanges on M-T's Z stuff? I know they gotta be less than .025"  ;)

According to the drawing on the back of the package they are .019" and I have never had a problem with them.

And as for looks, if you compare them to nscale, they appear to be halfway between pizza cutters and lo-pros.

Thanks for the info. If they had scaled down their standard N flange it would have been .024 (160/220 *.033).  ;)
[EDITED to correct typo (was 160/200)]

Z is 1:220  ;)

But your end result is correct.
