German Satellite - Communications Array

Okay, off we go. Here's the three parts that make up the Communications Array that sits up top.
The two smaller pieces were no prob at all - just a small amount of flash to remove and no airholes. You can also see i've drilled the holes for the front probe-thingies, which will made from some of the brass rod.
The bigger piece is the worst for casting in the whole kit, with this whacking great pouring lug being the main culprit, along with numerous airholes dotted about. Some seem to be open and some seem to be just below the surface. And i won't know which for sure until i put paint on. So best to assume they'll all show up and deal with them now.
