I just saw the notice for the new N&W boxcars ... too expensiveAs Tom Madden said, it depends on the production volume, and as Ted
implied, if etchings are included the value of the kit increases. The
resin market makes unique models available to us that we'd probably
never get from mass production. As far as I know Al Westerfield is
the only person who actually earns enough to live on! Martin has his
military retirement, and the smaller vendors all have other careers
and produce kits on the side. Ain't nobody getting rich from kits!
I will definitely get one of the N&W cars because they are distinctly
different looking than other freight cars. But then I put a high
value on variety.
P.S. Ok I'm calmer now... THE BAMBINO IS DEAD! LONG LIVE THE SOX!
