I am guessing that there are not too many HOn30 kits out there,
but a PA company has a few to offer to us. 

At a show last year I picked of two of the three kits they offer. 
The flat car kit has two models, and the tank car is a single kit. 

In following posts I'll show the kits and give a short review. 

Regards, Dave L.

The flat car kit contains two complete models,
less trucks and couplers. 

The kit is very complete with small detail parts,
and includes decals. 

The resin castings are nicely detailed,
and a separate frame and planked deck are provided. 

Thanks for looking

Dave L.

The tank car kit is more elaborate and has quite a few small details in the bag.

There is an underframe, deck, sub-frame, and the tank casting. 

Three sheets of decals are included. 

I am impressed by these kits and hope to actually build them some day. 

A caboose is the third kit in the series. 

Regards, Dave L.

My fondness for water scenes,
and the boats that would accompany them,
have prompted my collecting boats. 

Kits of many scales has provided hulls and parts,
for models I someday would like to scratch build. 

Here some old Lindburg kits gave me hulls. 
Notice that one of them has been cut to make a waterline hull. 

Regards, Dave L.

You have a good start on outfitting a small port area.

A Boat rental place and a fish company for sure....

I see a couple of trawlers with nets draped all over....
Or 1 trawler and a lobster boat.
 
But that's just me.


he he  :glad:

I am still looking for the perfect hull for a little steamboat,

to ferry passengers to a rail connection.
