Is Sunshine still accepting and shipping orders?

Yeah, I've found a number of packing errors over the years -- wrong doors, ends, whatever.

The worst one was a Santa Fe flat car kit -- I ordered one each of two cars, 30.1 and 30.3 (.1
had 10 stake pockets, and .3 had 12 stake pockets). Only after I had built them did I realize the
cars were exactly the same -- I'd received two 30.3 sets of parts! Only the box labels were different.

Nice cars, though. :-) I'm sure more surprises await me in kits I have not unwrapped yet!

 Those of you with stashes of kits may be in for nasty surprises if you haven� already examined them and submitted warranty claims. You would think Sunshine would attempt to correct their kit packing error, since that is NOT a warranty issue. I� extremely disappointed with the response, and can assure you that I�e purchased my last Sunshine kit as a result of their unacceptable business practices.
