Re: F&C

Maybe I'm just not following this... but what difference does the source/age of the masters make?

F&C's current prices should be almost entirely related to their variable costs, i.e. labor and materials...
Which are priced in today's very weak US dollars...

IMHO... even $32 for a hand-cast low production steam-era car is a -much- better bargain than
$32 for an injected styrene RTR generic model built by the thousands offshore.

Thanks to all who answered.

It looks like their prices went up in the last year. $32 is a little
expensive for a car originally done by West Shore or Yankee Clipper
15-20 years ago.

Ed,

I don't know... original early Sunshine kits fetch closer to $75-100
and most of the F&C kits are "improved" over the originals. In
addition, as folks have been saying in this thread, nobody should
actually PAY $32 for an F&C kit. More like $16.
