  • One Really Vintage Car Kit



    In our 02/09/2015 Blog titled “You’ve Come a Long Way Baby” http://www.cwrailman.com/ we show a vintage reefer kit from a company that some of you might not be familiar with. It is one of the oldest kits in our collection. If anyone can provide information about this company it would be appreciated. I will try and provide this info to the HOSeeker site for future reference.

    Reminds me of those old model airplane kits with a soft pine 12" X 2" X 6" block with instructions to "carve away anything that doesn't look like an airplane" :^)

      Denny,

      am going to guess that this is a Red Ball type kit with the Wood Block Center.

      then Card sides would be cut to fit the block,then add an underframe,bolsters etc.

      several other companies had kits that were similar,Gandy Dancer was one,but they mainly

      put out TT kits.

      how about posting a picture here of the parts ?

      Red Ball got new owners about 1978 and ran many of the old kits for a few years into the

      80s,also a few new kits were added,mostly cast lead based.
