Broken bars

While at MRNSW28 I purchased a GSV kit from the Casula Hobbies stand. Upon getting it home and examining the contents I discovered some of the bars on the sides of the kit had become broken for what ever reason. I am now considering about replacing all the bars with brass wire, as this will be an exhibition model and at the same time, correcting the height issues with the sides and ends. What is the opinion of other bloggers/modellers out there?

The damaged sides

Would like to say I had excellent time at the Modelling the Railways of NSW convention this year, despite the nerves of presenting for the first time. It was great to be able to go and give something back into the hobby and come back having met many like-minded people and learned a great deal myself. Thanks to all those who helped make it an excellent day. I am looking forward to going again next year; hopefully with something else to contribute.
