It's been both frustrating and exciting in the YMW shops.
For reasons I won't go into, the website for the Modelu figures has been delayed many months. At this time I still don't know when the website will be active.
However I will have a selection of Modelu figures available for sale at the St Louis RPM at the end of this month.
In the good news department, we have 5 new kits that will be released at the St Louis RPM.
The first 3 were originally Sunshine Models kits that have been reworked. Made into one piece bodies and have had custom photoetch details created along with new running boards and all new decal artwork from National Scale Car.
YMW-137 SP B-50-12A
YMW-138 NYC 40' steel rebuild
YMW-139 NYC 1 1/2 door raised roof rebuild
And 2 all new resin kits. One piece resin cast bodies, custom etchings , TMW trucks and all new decal artwork from National Scale Car
YMW-140 Great Northern 50' rebuild single door
YMW-141 Great Northern 50' rebuild double door
Each kit will retail for $65.00 USD and will be available through the website shortly after the RPM
And as a wee bit of a teaser
Here's a shot of a project we've been working away on slowly for a couple of years now;
A helium tank car kit.
This has been a tricky project trying to get the details just right.
At this time we're looking at multimedia kit, pressure cast resin components, photoetch side sheets, laser cut running boards and 3D printed trucks.
No firm release date as yet, too many variables in the various supply chains, but I'm hoping early next year.
See you in St Louis!
