Resin Car Works has released a mini-kit to transform a plastic model into a classic Fruit Growers Express truss rod reefer. This is the mini-kit that was gifted at the recent RPM Chicagoland meet.
Santa Fe Refrigerator Department reefers are the latest Resin Car Works HO scale freight car kit! A total of 1,360 SFRD rebuilds in the RR-35, -36, -39, and -40 classes were added in the mid-1940s. This new kit reflects these prototypes. Decals were created directly from prototype images. Tahoe Models #012 USRA 50-ton Andrews sideframes are provided in the kit.
In other Resin Car Works kit news, the CB&Q XM-32 AAR 40-foot steel boxcar (Kit 8.01) is again available. Our decal supply has been replenished and kits are shipping for those orders that had been on hand.
Our AC&F Type 27, 10,000-gallon, insulated tank car kits (Kit 6.0) are no longer available. All of our formerly available kits can be found on this webpage. Click on any of those model names or images to access the original information pages plus the links to the kit Extras pages.
All of our kit instructions are available as downloadable PDF files that are on the Extras page for each specific kit.
Keep on building!
