The Resin Car Works minions have been busy producing cool reefer models for your hot summer modeling! Here are the latest two kits.

  • Kit 10.3 – Rr-43 – SFRD rebuilds with Morton running boards. 766 cars were rebuilt and installed in 1947.
  • Kit 10.4 – Rr-45 – SFRD rebuilds with Apex running boards. 500 cars were rebuilt and installed in 1948.

The Rr-43 and Rr-45 classes had rectangular “solid steel riveted panel” roofs and the earlier “improved” dreadnaught ends.

Kits 10.1 and 10.2 are also being reissued. These kits covered SFRD rebuilds of the RR-35, -36, -39, and -40 classes built between 1944 and 1946 for a total of 1,360 cars. These kits sold out quickly last summer. Visit the Resin Car Works Kits page for full kit details.

In other news, we added an postal insurance option on the order form. Resin Car Works is not responsible for lost, damaged or stolen packages. Insurance can be added to your order using a USPS rate table on the order form.

We can now ship to Canada, but orders require payment using an international money order, along with $9 US for each kit to cover shipping costs.

Very few decal sets are on hand for these kits. When these are gone, the kits will truly be gone. Visit the website for details and the order form.
