Someone told me recently that the conventional wisdom (or Murphy’s Law) is that once you take the time to build a model that’s not already on the market, it will show up just after you finish it. Earlier this year, I modified and custom painted one of the older Bowser N8 caboose kits to get the road number and paint scheme I was looking for. I see that Bowser is now going to upgrade that old kit to their “Executive Line” standards. That’s good news for me, because I wasn’t prepared to rebuild another N8 kit, but I’ll certainly take one now that they’ve stepped up the quality.
More good news from Bowser… they’ve posted some photos of the test models of their GMD SD40-2. These look good. I wasn’t going to buy any of these, but maybe I’ll contribute a couple to the WRMRC fleet.
Good news all around.
