I built one of those when I was 16. It was really beyond my capabilities at the time and the result was rather sloppy. But I couldn’t pass up the price. – Al Westerfield

Don't believe anybody has mentioned the old Kurtz Kraft HO PS-1 boxcar plastic kits of the late 1950's. They were years ahead of their time with pretty much all add on details. Sold for something like 89 cents. Believe all the kits had correct lettering which was well done-another novel feature for period.
