I'm sure I speak for many modelers when I say that Kadee #5's and Jaybee

our present preference. I would still end up adding Kadee #58's or
semi-scale Accumates, and either Intermountain or Reboxx wheel sets,
bringing the cost of the kit into a range nearly twice that of a
comparable model from Westerfield. I think they'd be better off leaving
the wheel sets and couplers out and lowering the price a bit. Those of
us who build resin can then procure the remaining parts depending upon
our own preference.
Amen. It's enough of a disparity that I'll just wait for the F&C CofGa ventilator, even though I bet that overall it's not of the same quality (and of a different prototype, I believe). $50 plus additional funds to procure my own replacement wheelsets and couplers is creating a price point that is beyond what I will bear.
