Re: [SSPM] Next 2 S scale kits will be ...

At this late date I have to assume you have already settled the
question of whether the "B&O wagontop" will be an M-15k or an M-53.
While these two cars look very similar, and still completely
different from anything else, they were nonetheless quite different
from each other.

Without looking up the details, I'm not sure if the M-15k had Duryea
underframes. They were rebuilds of pre-WWOne cars, so their
underframes, even if equipped with Duryea, were completely different
from the M-53. The most visible difference was the appearance of the
side sills.

The next (2) S scale resin kits . in order of appearance . will be a B&O
wagontop box (maybe with the Duryea underframe) and the SAL B7
"turtleback" roof box. All of the info required to CAD-model both card is
in my hands, so it's just a matter of time to devote to design as to when
these will be available. The B&O car will be available in late Feb/early
March; the SAL car in late April/early May. The B&O car will include both
door styles (Creco and Youngstown) to cover the majority of the revenue
