My good friend Bill Welch received bad news in September 2020 when he was diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer. During this period, I kept in close contact with him and we discussed many things about modeling, world events, and his beloved Dodgers. Bill was always challenging me to raise the bar and try new methods, tools, and materials.
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.
