Intermountain 40' Steel Reefer question

     I'm always on eBay, looking for hoppers, because I need about 150 of the damn things. Well last week I came across this four-pack of Intermountain Reefers and liked them so much, I had to have them.



     Now that they're here and I see how nice they really are, I'm thinking four isn't going to be enough and I should probably have ten. So I went googling for more. But IM doesn't list them - out of production I guess. There's a label on the back that reads "Offered Exclusively By Crowley Scale Models", but his website hasn't seen an update since 2010. Does anyone have any history or availability on this car? I'd love a few more.

I wonder if that is something Canuck, Dan Crowley did before he moved more into Remote Control artillery?

Wait -- I don't want to derail, but ... "remote control artillery?" Is that a hobby? WTH?

Maybe artillery wasn't the best way to put it.  Tanks, remote control tanks.

Aren't those the ones with roof hatches?

Nah, that intermountain kit has end bunkers, not overhead.

The roofs aren't really visible, but the door is full height - an 8-hatch reefer has overhead bunkers so the door is a lot shorter.
