Thanks for the update, Ed. You have moved modeling forward and we are all grateful for your efforts not to mention all the superglue sales you caused!

No joy yet.
I inquired with Gene Fusco about the project because I have been one who pushed for it, along with Al Hoffman. Both of us pushed & provided the necessary information for selfish reasons of MoPac and Burlington that used the "type 3” hatch cover & locking bar design.
Given that reservations have been sufficient to proceed into production, HO models would likely have been released by now if not for the Chinese plant closure one year ago. Gene indicated the models are still “a go” and are projected for production in 2020.
