Here we are in a New Year so let’s take a look at some Resin Car Works updates.
First off, there are a few items gone from our website. RCW Kit 12.0 Soo Line AAR Modified Design 50-foot Steel Auto Boxcars is no longer available. The kit listing has moved to our kit archive page. The NKP 008 decals for the 99000 series hoppers are also sold out.
Lastly, there are only four kits remaining of Kit 15.0, the Milwaukee Road 48′-6″ welded composite gondola with drop bottom doors. Check the Kits page on our website for availability. If the kits are listed there, then we have stock available.
We have a couple new kits coming soon. First up should be an Illinois Central steel-sheathed, square corner post boxcar. A Louisville & Nashville coal gondola should follow in our release schedule.
If all goes according to plan, we’ll release the small dome 10K UTLX X-3 tank car and a reworked 6.5K X-3 tank car with both the 1917 and 1937 frames. The small dome 10K car hasn’t been done before. There were twice as many of these as the large dome cars. The 6.5K is just about a new model compared to the Sunshine Models kit. The dome on the Sunshine kit was too large at 54-inch diameter. Our new 6.5K tank car kit will have a 48-inch diameter dome. We have more info now.
After that, who knows. There are several possibilities. The best way to keep up with our releases is to subscribe to this blog. We post new kit release details here first. Scroll to the bottom of the page here, enter your email address in the proper field, and hit the Subscribe button.
Frank and his family will be off to Florida for a couple weeks in February. This will slow order fulfillment as well as new releases.
