Steve,
The kit is resin and produced by Aardvark Models. I can look up the particulars if you like. The kit is about $45. Not cheap but of a model you can't get otherwise and of very excellent quality. It is meant as a conversion body for a Jag frame/engine combo. My hotrod days are past, but this is a really cool little rail car.

Thanks Tom, just curious so dont worry on my part. Not really sure what I would do with one anyway :) . Looks like a very well made kit from the pic though. Will look forward to seeing it once you finish adding your magic touch.

A Ford T might be a bit too large and wide on 15 Inch track:

The above Ford is a Sun Star Metal model in 1 :24 scale.


Have Fun

I lost the radiator shell some time back and so it sat. I just unearthed it again, so sometime soon I hope I will be able to finish it.
