These are now available from Stonebridge Models at www.stonebridgemodels.com .  They're even honoring the show pricing of $25 each, though retail on the kits ended up at $30.  They should be up on their website soon.  Since Stonebridge bought my entire first run, they have a defacto exclusive on these!

Cool, thanks Mike. Just my luck too, my hobby budget is recently non-existent. I'll have keep my eyes peeled for another run down the road and try to get in on that. Or scrounge $25 out of the change jar :lol:

Chris- those flats look great. How hard was it to decal those flat cars? I can't imagine the decals being more that a few millimeters high? I have a very limited experience with Z scale, if you can't tell :)

If you trim the decals around the stake pockets, then they are only one decal per side. So not that hard at all.

Ah ok, that makes sense. I was imagining that each side had multiple decals for one reason or another. :facepalm:

Thanks
