Coming soon, an HO scale UTLX 10,000 gallon, X-3 tank car!
The Resin Car Works minions have been working to produce the next kit in time for the upcoming RPM Chicagoland meet, October 20-22 in Lisle, IL. This is an all new HO scale resin freight car kit that can represent nearly 13,000 prototype tank cars. A limited number of kits will be for sale at RPM Chicagoland. We will accept mail orders after the event.
A couple of Railroad Prototype Modeler (RPM) events are on the calendar soon. First up is the St. Louis RPM in Collinsville, IL, August 12 & 13. We had a great time at the 2015 event. Getting there from the airport was easy, with very little traffic to negotiate once you are at the convention center. Unfortunately, Resin Car Works is unable to attend the St. Louis meet as there’s just too much to do. There are details for new kits to wrap up, RPM Chicagoland commitments to fulfill, and there are several honey-do projects at the house.
The Prototype Rails Prototype Modeler meet wrapped up in Cocoa Beach recently. Railroad modelers attended from all over the United States and one flew in from Sweden. Fifty speakers offered a variety of presentations through two and a half days for the 250+ attendees. Four modelers sent along their impressions of the event and some photos. We hope these personal stories and images inspire readers to attend a railroad prototype modeler meet in 2016. Click on any image here to review a larger size.
