Thank you Bill; and I suspect Lee English thanks you too! IMHO Bowserdoes an excellent job at building
shake-the-box kits and has chosen PRR prototypes, much to our goodfortune. Since they are molded in
styrene and have the high up front cost, he must appeal to a mass market.That precludes doing a
Westerfield caliber product. Since much of what he does are signature PRRcars, he is constrained as to
what roads he can legitimately paint on the bodies. Notice thatBranchline has kept to widely used bodies
styles, and IM and RC don't seem to care, and will paint a car foranything.
F30s, H21s, and numerous cabin
cars. These are far more than stand-ins. These are PRR prototypes. Andfor those desiring better
detailed models, they are an excellent and inexpensive starting point.heaven is populated with injection
molded MP54s ;-) - prototype "shorty" which, in its non motorizedversion, could be legitimately
painted for at least 8 roads.detail
disappointed.quality of a new Bowser project (N8), and everyone is already
improvementIt may very well be 100% correct. Yes there is always room for
youon ANY model project. You HO guys are missing the point. Look at your
ahave left? Almost nothing! At least they are coming out with new cars at
PRRreasonable rate. They are American made from what I know about them. The
productsprojects that Bowser has released have probably kept them in business.
doubtyou all love to complain about NOT better then NOTHING? I seriously
itit. Bowser does not HAVE to do any of them!
withwhat it is. It is someone putting up $50,000.00+ and letting me play
probablysame concerns as you, buy will still buy the hell out of them because my
do a better job because S Scale is the perfect size for detail. (:->)
