Re: Rocket Express - Problems?

thecitrusbelt@...
 

Because of several complaints I received (but did not post) through my Model Railroads of Southern California website I sent an e-mail to Ron to see how responsive he was.

I had to wait four days but he did respond as follows:

 

“Yes we are still doing casting but I do not get many emails at all so I only check the address maybe once a week and sometimes longer with life getting in the way.

So yes the information is still up to date.

Thanks again.

Ron”

 

So you’ll need to be a bit patient as Ron has to fit his model business into other responsibilities.

       One of them is a pattern I suggested, for the pairs of rivet rows on house cars with flanged posts, one set twice the spacing of the other. In HO, it's set 88108.

David,

How late could one reasonably expect to find a car painted in this scheme?

Gary, the MPCX billboard scheme remained current during the 1930s but was dropped early in WW II in favor of reporting marks, numbers, and data only.  It’s likely that at least some MPCX cars lasted in the earlier P/L scheme through WW II and into the late 1940s, though they would - of course - have grown increasingly grimy with the passage of time.

Re: Mopac versus Wabash wood caboose

Gary Roe
 

Whoa Jerry!  Whoa!  I need to disspell that rumor right away.  I am not an "authority" on anything, much less on the Wabash.

However, you are right about them being virtual duplicates.  Series 2600-2624 were built by AC&F, as were the MP 700-909; and what dimensions I have records for, do match.  The remainder of the Wabash cars (2625-2653) were built to the same plan in the Decatur Shops.  There were detail differences.  The most notable being the trucks, which were an unusual arch bar design.  I have yet to find a model truck that matches.

Almost duplicates.  Since these are laser kits, any details specific to the Wabash could easily be added.  Maybe Wabash authority Gary Roe will chime in.

I have ordered several times from Ron and he does take awhile. I know he has a day job to support the hobby business. Last I talked with him he was on top of his game and staying up with the orders. He has also been good about replying to emails.

I have ordered from Rocket Express four seperate times.  The wait time was rather long (over six months on each) but I received all four kits.  Ron is not fast, and perhaps waits until he gets a few orders before casting his kits.  

While the 40' and 50' boxcars were easy to build his two cabooses have a casting problem with the roofs (at least the ones I bought and the one John Golden built) so if you've ordered a caboose check out the peak for any sags.  I ended up removing all the cast on parts and building up the roof with Tamiya putty to get it level.   I haven't tackled his RI LCL caboose yet but have built the Single-sheathed caboose model.

Hi List Members,

My experience was different.

I ordered and sent payment via check - the check was paid out by my bank a few months later, but my items did not show up. I finally got the items I ordered about 11 months after I sent my order in.

So my experience was anything BUT prompt!

That having been said, the items were nicely done.

Does anyone have firsthand experience as a customer of Rocket Express

( http://www.rocketexpress.biz/ <http://www.rocketexpress.biz/> )?



I posted a promo message for the company on my website and immediately
received negative feedback from members.



I sent an e-mail to the company three days ago and have yet to receive a
response.



Are they still in business? Is the owner on top of his business or only
casually engaged due to time constraints?



Thanks
