Re: Who Produced the First Resin Kit in HO?

Westerfield <westerfield@...>

Richard - I produced cars about a year before Dennis did (I remember him complaining to me about the accuracy of one of my kits - I later returned the favor about his spurious Accurail road names - all in fun) but Funaro produced his auto car while still in high school, probably before me. And Eric Bronsky made some HO traction about the same time. My kits were the first in wide distribution. - Al

The earliest ones I'm aware of were produced by Dennis Storzek, now of
Accurail. Dennis, who is on this list, may know if there were earlier
