Chief Resin Car Works minion Frank Hodina has been busy finishing off one of the new tank car kits. Sales are picking up and additional lettering schemes will be coming soon. Ordering details can be found on the Kits page of the Resin Car Works site.
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.
Here is something a few Resin Car Works customers will need. We were a little late completing the instructions for the new UTLX Class X 6.5K gallon tank car kits, but they are now available on our website. Click here for a page of extras to help build your kits. We will have images of Frank’s completed kit coming soon.
As noted previously, Resin Car Works sold out of the initial production runs of these tank car kits at RPM Chicagoland. Our minions have been working to produce more parts for new kits. A blog announcement will be made when we have more of these UTLX Class X 6.5K gallon tank car kits ready to ship. Thank you for your patience.
This isn’t a typical Workbench Wednesday post, but more of a kit update. Recently I was assembling the parts for the new Resin Car Works UTLX 10K Class X tank car kit. In building the car I found I had screwed the pattern up splendidly! In the above image, the blue line on the tank indicates where the joint between the upper and lower sections is supposed to be. I used a common plastic tank as the base for the pattern and I never checked the bottom course width with the drawing.
