It'd be nice to see an X-3 come out as a kit or RTR.
===================================


Steve,

Sunshine Models released an HO scale resin kit for the UTLX X-3 cars
in 2002 ot 2003. Kit details can be found here:
http://www.steamfreightcars.com/modeling/new%
20products/sunshine/utlxx3_1main.html

Some finished and in-process models can be seen on this page:

As far as I know, these kits are still available directly from
Sunshine Models. There are a few different types representing
different capacities. Sunshine has no web presence, but a satisfied
customer created a website with kit details and ordering info.
http://www.sunshinekits.com/contactsunshine.html

These are challenging kits that build into very nice models. If you
are not familiar with resin kit construction, you may want to start
with a gondola or box car to gain confidence before tackling one of
the UTLX models.
