Some really bad hacks.

There are a batch of Wagontop cabeese on Ebay right now that are a fairly bad
hack job. The look like poor resin copies of the JNJ resin kit. (flashing included free of charge) They do not
include the photoetch hand rails and roofwalks and have some cheesy Lifelike
caboose bits glued onto them. They are also missing the photo etch steps.

Here is one of them:

Sorry to say, I might have sold him the decals to do these. If I had known what
they were going on, I would have refused.

I feel sorry for anybody that pays $39 for these.

Try that. The link didn't cut and paste right.
