I’ve built a number of HO scale resin freight car kits from Funaro and Camerlengo* in my time.
Stopping at the F and C booth was always a treat when taking in the annual Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, Massachusetts. Unlike many vendors, there were always deals to be had.
But I’m pleasantly surprised to find F&C has a (limited) number of S scale offerings, too. I ordered a pair of the New York Central 40-foot nine panel gondola kits (Kit #S-210), and the service was excellent.
The kits come with decals, which is great – including lettering for the NYC’s Michigan Central subsidiary. I’ll have to do one as an NYC car, and the other in the MCRR scheme, since the MCRR has a whole bunch of extra lettering that will make it really stand out in a train.
Trucks and couplers are not included.
