What goes into a Graham Farish model?

Have you ever wondered how many parts go into making a Graham Farish model? We have taken a Graham Farish Class 101 3 car dmu and have counted all the components that make up the model and it amounts to a grand total of 458 parts!

But it's not just parts that make up a model, for example, each Class 101 body shell has over 15 different spraying and printing operations to apply the livery. A multitude of bespoke tools and moulding equipment is required in the production of the end product, with the final finishing process being an elaborate process carried out by hand.
