At this time, Resin Car Works has suspended shipping orders for a few weeks. Frank, our chief minion, has tested positive for the coronavirus. He feels well but is under quarantine. If you sent an order, please be patient at this time as orders will not be processed until November.
We thank you for the support this year and look forward to new resin kit releases.
As a reminder to Resin Car Works customers, some orders can take a few months to fulfill. Staggered arrival of kit parts could delay filling orders before everything is on hand to ship. There may also be delays in filling orders for “mature” kits as we wait for demand to justify additional molds. Checks are not cashed until your order is ready to ship.
This reminder is ever more pertinent today as we all deal with the pandemic. RCW works with a number of people who produce castings, etched metal parts, decals, and other kit ephemera. Their processes have also slowed at this time due to material supplier issues. We ask for your patience as we fulfill your orders.
Keep in mind that other resin freight car kit companies operate in similar manners. Chad Boas, Funaro & Camerlengo, Jerry Hamsmith, National Scale Car, Speedwitch Media, Sylvan Scale Models. Westerfield Models, Yarmouth Model Works, and others may be experiencing delays in receiving kit parts for their order fulfillment. We are all small operations dedicated to providing modelers with unique kits of high detail. Your patience is appreciated as we deal with various inconveniences. Thank you.
Oh yeah, one more thing. We have a new kit coming soon. Keep watching here for the details.
