Yes, I'm still here!

Image result for out of stock

There are many customers out there who are waiting patiently(I hope) for me to fill their orders for kits and etched parts.
Yarmouth Model Works has experienced unprecedented delays in restocking etchings and resin castings from my suppliers these last few months.
No one is more unhappy about this than I, let me assure you.
Nothing irks me more than having someones money and not being able to send them the items they have purchased.
Please bear with me a little longer. I'm expecting a large etching order to arrive in a couple of days, and castings within a couple of weeks.

And once we get all our back orders addressed look for more new cars this coming year.

Bringing up the rear

These two cabooses just emerged from the shop, to take their place on the caboose track, while they await crews and their trains.
Built from kits offered by American Model Builders, these 2 laser cut kits were an absolute delight to put together.
Well engineered laser cut kits area shear joy to work on, everything fits as it should, nice crisp detail. What more could one want?
The finishing of these 2 cabooses presented one minor problem. One that I was frankly rather surprised about. With the huge popularity of the Southern Pacific in the modeling community, I was surprised that no one offers decals specifically for this class of caboose.
Fortunately the solution was rather simple.
I used Speedwitch Media SP boxcar decals. Simple solution.
Weathered the heck out of them with washes and some overspray, and they're ready for service.
