The absence of trucks and wheels would not bother anyone on THIS mailing list, since the trucks
are most likely not prototypically correct for the particular car. (Not a fault of the kit, but railroads
bought trucks according to their preferences.)

I have a number of Brunchline’s Blueprint Series without truck assemblies (wheels, frames and hardware) also some without weights.  These were robbed for lessor complicated models.  Other than that the kits are complete for assembly.  Yes sometime things happen that are stupid. 

Do the kits have value to Railroad Modelers?  Have they lost value and would that value be 70%, 50% or 40% of the complete kit as from the manufacturer?
