Re: Essential freight cars in RMC

but there is a recent advancement in the RP tooling world that can have
HUGE impact on short run projects. I'm now able to have the SLA process
produce ceramic injection mold cores and cavities within 3-4 days!<

It's beginning to sound like very limited run models could be make in
styrene using the above process. Not sure how the design/tooling cost would
divide into the maximum run but it really sounds like this might be the
future for limited run styrene kits.
Our discussion before centered on masters for resin but this sounds like
styrene kits could also be part of the discussion.
Historical societies and clubs _might_ have the funds necessary to
support the tooling. Of course it would take careful study of cost vs.
sales!
