Hi Ged,
Yes, 45° is about right for these planes. You'll then won't to create a burr on the tip of that edge, as you would when sharpening a card scraper. This can be done with a burnisher (preferably; if you have one). Or, if you don't, you might be able to use the shank of a screwdriver although, the steel used for these tends to be quite soft and you may not find it as effective.
