The St Louis RPM is in 2 1/2 weeks and I want to have 4 new kits ready in time for the show.
Just now I finally finished assembling the pilot models and they are in the spray booth drying.
Proper 15" rung center ladders have been created for this model and 15" wide end ladders are provided for as well, along with all the usual etched details you've come to expect from Yarmouth Model Works.
The other kits are the ATSF 12 panel riveted boxcars. Other than a plastic model with cast on details this car has not been offered up in kit form before. The production run will actually consist of 3 kits covering off the variations in the production runs.
Speedwitch Media created a special set of decals for us for this kit which will cover off all the variations and slogans that were applied to these cars before the application of the "giant herald" in 1959.
Custom ladders and other etched details have been created to help create a real stand out model.
I fully expect to have kits for sale in St Louis now that the pilot models are done.
Now to sit down and write the instructions.
