Resin Car Works announces a new HO scale freight car kit! Kit 9.0 represents AC&F Type 27, 8,000-gallon, insulated tank cars. American Car & Foundry built 151 of these insulated Type 27 tank cars between late 1929 and mid-1943.
We launch this kit with a Warren Petroleum version. The kit includes decals and a pair of Tahoe Model Works Buckeye A.R.A. 50-ton truck side frames.
Several additional versions will be announced as the decals and parts arrive.
Resin Cars Works is pleased to announce the release of our sixth kit; Insulated AC&F Type 27 Class 103/104 tank cars!
The first series of kits have 10,000 gallon tanks, which were generally used in the transport of asphalt. Decals have been produced to offer the standard Shippers Tank Car Lines lettering and for lessees Paluxy Asphalt, Cities Service, and United States Rubber Company.
These tank car models have not been available as HO scale kits and are produced from completely new masters. The frame is a one piece part where only the details need to be applied. The tanks and domes were created as 3D models to ensure that the various dome sizes and tanks fit. Decals were created directly from prototype images.
The kits are composed of cast resin parts, decals, cast brass parts from Precision Scale Company, etched parts from Yarmouth Model Works, plastic parts, wire and grabs from Tichy Train Group, and appropriate truck side frames from Tahoe Models.
