Are you tired of trying to find the rare and very expensive brass rolling stock for your S scale train layout? This composite style two bay hopper car might be just the thing for your train layout. The prototype style of car was built of wood and steel and is suitable from around 1920 untill the 1950's. Here is an S gauge model of a hopper car which had been used for hauling coal and many other loads. The model duplicates the real thing in S (1/64) scale with mostly wood construction and cast metal detail parts. It was produced by Kinsman scale models based in Melrose, Massachusetts. The Kinsman brand was the S scale version of the popular Ambroid HO kits. This brand was produced around the early to late 1960's. This kit features an interesting prototype design, milled strip wood, wire, metal detail parts and instructions. All you need is your favorite trucks and couplers (NOT INCLUDED) to complete this hopper car. Although I prefer a full scale model, this kit can be built using American Flyer trucks for Hi-rail use. The kit is in brand new condition with the detail envelopes still factory stapled. It has a total length of just under 6" when finished. This will enable it to nicely operate around some pretty sharp curves that are common on smaller train layouts. Here is a model that you definitely will not find on everyone else's layout. I will combine multiple items to save you money on shipping. Shipping is by USPS (Priority Mail). Payment is expected through Paypal within 3 days after auction has ended.
