LARGE HO SCHNABEL CAR KIT IN PRODUCTION
CEBX 800 KITS ARE NOW SHIPPING
December 20, 2005:
The CEBX 800 kit produced by Concept Models may be the largest rolling stock kit ever produced stateside. The kit includes all of the resin castings to make the model illustrated. The truck frames (no wheel sets) are sold separately and coupler pockets are provided for compatibility with most commonly used couplers.
Two loads, simulating the large high pressure vessels commonly shipped by this method, will be available shortly. A short or long version can be selected to fit the size of the layout or mantle piece where the model will reside.
Concept Models specializes in unique niche market models overlooked by mass marketers due to the limited interest in such models. The models consist of resin castings and assembly hardware. Hand grabs, ladders, and related detailing are not provided to avoid dependence on suppliers. Focus is on providing the basis for the modeler to exercise his skill in taking the model to the detail level desired. Instructions are all photo illustrated by an experience technical writer.
The company currently markets over sixteen model kits all based on resin molding technology. The company is also in the process of releasing decals used in their custom car manufacturing.
MSRP is $120.00 USD for the car kit. $30.00 for the truck frame kit. All available at web address http://www.con-sys.com
Note: Only half of the completed model is shown for close-up photography. Kit includes both halves making for a very long train car. Add a load and the loaded car is longer than some model railroads.
