Re: Sunshine on Ebay

Recently someone sent me the results on the bidding for one of Sunshine's AC&F insulated tank car kits. Note I said kit, as in unbuilt. The price was well over $200. (I built two of these, wonder what they would bring?)

I should add that every time I see the IM folks at one of the prototype meets I remind them all they need to do is cut a tool for this insulated tank and they would have a whole new model with many colourful (eye-candy) schemes.

  I would have to agree with you on the price.  I followed the prices for a year before I came up with mine.  Some are out there, Vinager tank car, Pickle car for instance. All in what people are willing to pay.  Look at the brass market, now that is crazy!!

But very well executed by a very talented modeler.
That mini-kit can represent the same amount of time to complete as a conventional resin kit, so I'm not sure what a "reasonable" price might have been.
I think that selling price is well within line for the item.

this is the highest I've ever seen for a Sunshine mini-kit
