Rapido f40s (n scale)

There has been no mention of those locomotives in the previous 2 news letters. Anyone happen to know what's going on? I'm on the verge of either buying or painting kato f40s, or 3d printing the proper prototype. My Canadian set has gone unused for a near 7 months now

N 1:160    F40PH-2D Locomotive (Original and Rebuilt)    
Order Deadline: Limited Availability    
Delivery: Delayed    
Current Status: Delayed

Almost sounds like production issues.
Attempting to model a modern Southern Pacific based in 2015...

They mentioned in one of their livestream events that they had received them, that they failed QA, and they were being sent back to the factory for rework.

Word has it there was a mechanical problem with them.
