Plus the fact that all the resin tank car kits are tricky to assemble.

It is messages like this one that prompted me to ask the question about RTR
resin. People want an X-3 (and other cars) IN PLASTIC. Sunshine already
makes a resin kit for the X-3. So why do folks want it in RTR plastic? Is it
because they want the material to be plastic, in particular? I guess the
answer is "no" - personally, I don't care if the car is made out of bamboo,
so long as it is nicely executed.
So that leaves a few possible reasons: availability (not a problem w/ other
resin mfrs), pre-painting / lettering, or the fact that the plastic car will
be RTR.

I suggest that the UTLX X-3 tank car would fit perfectly into ExactRail's
Signature Series, next to their MILW ribsides.
