New N scale caboose kit from AMB/LASERkit

AMB has migrated their HO scale Norfolk & Western caboose kit to N scale (to go along with their recently migrated GN and NKP kits). Sadly, their M&StL caboose kit remains decidedly HO only  :(

Cheers,

I have the GN kit (not assembled yet), which I will letter for SP&S (they ended up with 6 of these from the GN).
I had no noticed the huge number of caboose kits AMB makes in HO.   

Well, we can keep hoping.  The fact that they migrated another HO one to N is a good sign.
They make an NP one in HO that looks a lot like Robert Ray's 1200 series caboose and since he isn't doing his
these days, it would be nice if that one made the jump.

I'd really like them to do the NP's Bay Window cabooses.

I have only built one . The kit is nicely detailed and was fairly easy to build . The worst part was trying to get the window frames and mullions lined up with the window openings on the car sides .

Hmm, will have to put one on the "To-order" list.  As a N&W modeler, basically ANYTHING is nice!

Is anybody emailing and asking for the cars in N?Maybe enough requests sent in might just get the cars you want.Anyway it does not take much time to send off a email with your requests. :D

You'd think for the price they could have included metal wheelsets...

The kit does not include any trucks or couplers.  That is up to the modeler to choose (although they make suggestions).
