CNR 8 Hatch Reefers
In the end these S scale models from MLW Services rate an "OK". I haven't worked this hard and long on a resin kit in quite some time. But the potential is there. The etched components are first rate. The extensive instructions demonstrate a desire to help the modeler great a quality model.
There are just some speed bumps in the kit that need cleaning up. I have been told by the business owner that improvements and changes with the castings are underway. Part of the challenge was that I had the "honour" of getting some of the first run casting sets.
These are going to look great in a layout setting. The prototype is unique and striking. I'm very much looking forward to switching them on Trevor's layout soon.
