New castings have arrived for a couple of our popular Resin Car Works kits, so these are being re-introduced. The mini-kit for Pullman-Standard “Carbuilder” corrugated boxcar ends. This was the mini-kit offered at the 2017 RPM Chicagoland meet.
George Toman shares his progress on a special HO scale model. Here are his notes.
While attending the 2017 RPM Chicagoland meet I received a mini-kit for a Chicago Great Western 40-foot boxcar. This car had proprietary Pullman-Standard “Carbuilder” corrugated round corner ends that were once available from the late Stan Rydarowicz. The car ends were made special for this min-kit by using new technology to create the masters for this kit. The new semi-scale coupler box parts are also included. These are made to fit the semi-scale Kadee #158 whisker coupler.
The RPM Chicagoland conference is looming on the calendar at the end of October. Organizer Mike Skibbe recently sent details on the mini-kit that will be available to advance registrants. A sample model isn’t quite ready at this time but it will be available in four scales.
