Re: F&C


RE F&C kits:Steve's kits have improved over the years.Some of his early kits
left a lot to be desired.I have built a fair number and have found the
quality to vary. His Rutland stock cars are on a par with Westerfield and
Sunshine.His CP"Big Otis'' is also excellent.He has been upgrading many of
his cars.Two areas that need major improvement are his plans and his

I've read some snipes at F&C. What do you guys think of their quality?
I built a CNJ composite gon a couple of years ago and it practically
fell together. The underframe was complex, but all one piece. I
bought a couple of kits when they had a "sale" and I got what I paid
for, barely.
A couple of their built up kits look nice in the Walthers catalog
like their D&H gons.
I bought and built a fair number of their kits under different names
including Yankee Clipper.
The detail isn't as good as Westerfield or Sunshine but the cars are
much easier to assemble.
