Ok, Alex beat me too it...yes our Amored cars are finally available, either through Brigade or direct from us.

And, just to show I have been busy, here are the pics of todays progress on the Armored Train!

I expect to have the Engine and tender combo done next week.  Flat car is essentially finished except for some rivets.


Shot with a couple of Copplestone minis (painted by Steve Dean..thank you ebay!) and our armored cars for scale.


Flat car can be made with, or without the sides.


It's so hard to photograph white plastic!







This first set should be finished and in casting by the second week of October.  So the debut is planned for Fall-In in November...

Of course, anyone can e-mail me or chime in here and I'll set aside one for you.  Pricing is still unknown till we get a casting qoute.  But it does depends on how many we actually order.  If ther is a big pent up demand, pricing tends to go down.

Enjoy!

That armoured train might make for some interesting pulp scenarios!

It looks great.

Looking god Brent, could this be used for WW2?.


Looks like these guys like trains too, not my scale  :(

Awesome BOB train! What about tracks? Do you plan to make any tracks for them also?

man, that's a big model.  In 28mm, it would be the size of a pool table!

WW2 Russian trains may be something we revisit eventually.  Really depends on how this one does.  Some of the later Russian Civil War trains could also pass for early WW2 ones.  Especially the purpose built ones with all the extra turrets.  The flat cars could certainly serve double duty.

Track is S scale...which are actually quite easy for us to acquire here in the States.  So we'll cheaply provide track to anyone who cannot source it themselves.  We might even offer a package set that is the whole train (engine and three cars) and 5 to 6 feet of track.

we will be crossing our fingers to make the release at Fall In.

I ship overseas almost everyday. Postage is reasonable.
BTW - My webstore overcalculates postage and we adjust on shipment.
