NEW PRODUCTS: Urethane Kits in 1/48

 A new offering from Southern Car & Foundry.
Jon Cagle has released his latest kit for the American Railway Association Standard Boxcar of 1932.   These cars were built in large numbers and owned by a large variety of railroads.  It seems that each railroad opted for different appliances like door designs, hand brake types, roof and even ends. This particular version has Square Corner 4/4 Dreadnaught Ends and a Murphy Panel Roof.  Road names associated with this version are the MP, MEC, Clinchfield, Central of Georgia, Western Maryland ( one lot was built with square corner ends ), and the Union Pacific, which had 1.
The kit comprises  the typical components you expect from SC&F;  one piece body/roof combination and one piece floor castings. Etched ladder stiles, stirrup steps, etc., laser cut templates and jigs, laser cut running boards, and the usual injection plastic brake and door hardware from Ultra Scale and San Juan Car Co.  Seven pages of written instructions with over 40 images of the  kit build are also included.
Price of this new kit is $165.00 plus 13.50 shipping, lower US 48.  Southern Car & Foundry will ship world wide as well, contact them for details.  Jon will be updating the website this coming week, but if you want to place an order asap, you can contact Jon thru jscagle@msn.com  and we can arrange an electronic invoice as well.
Decals are available from Protocraft  
Jon has a couple new kits in the works that will  be announced when they are available for sale.
PACIFIC NORTWEST MINIATURES
Pacific Northwest Miniatures is a new supplier of high quality printed resin parts and kits in 1/48.  They have a wonderful selection of Model T Ford parts and a wide range of details for doing interiors of building.   I have borrowed several pictures from their website to illustrate the range of products being offered.
The Model T chassis is very complete.  They sell a fixture to hold parts in-place during assembly.  That is a fantastic idea to help models.  The vehicles come with headlight that are hollow so they can be illuminated with LEDs is so choose.
Here are some of their neat details to complete a scene or building interior.
You can review their product line by clicking on the link below.
Hope that the information is useful.
