So what's your point, Pete?<<
My point is that some people collect specific kits. The same thing happens
with armor and aircraft models. Sometimes the old kits have something better
going for them, but sometimes it is just the collectibility that interests
people.

True - the Westerfield kit is a one-piece body kit cast in modern
resin as opposed the the late first generation resin of the Storzek
kit.  The Storzek model was an excellent kit, but the Westerfield
model is just as nice, easier to assemble, and readily available
with a couple of mouse clicks at $10 less than the winning bid of
that auction.

As for the NEB&W Green Dot KCS auto boxcar, Funaro did the masters
and castings the first time around, and offers the exact same kit
today.

So what's your point, Pete?
