    For those of you modeling the Canadian Pacific from the 1920's up to the mid 1980's era, Kaslo Shops has just released an N Scale Caboose (Van up here in Canada) kit in 5 styles:
    -NK-10: 35' 6" Low Cupola, Tongue & Groove Siding, Rd # 435018-436979
    -NK-11: 35' 6" High Cupola, Tongue & Groove Siding, Rd # 435018-436979
    -NK-12: 35' 6" High Cupola, Plywood Sheathed (Modernized) Rd # 435018-436979
    -NK-13: 34' 10" High Cupola, Tongue & Groove Siding, Rd # 437035-437264
    -NK-14: 34' 10" High Cupola, Plywood Sheathed (Modernized) Rd # 437035-437262
    The kits are cast resin, less trucks, couplers, paint and decals with photo etched stainless steel doors, windows, brake wheels and end railings as well as 3 variants of the respective cupola (3 end/2 side window, Tongue & Groove standard and Metal sheathed Standard).
    The kits list at $39.95 Cdn (about $25.00 US, given the current exchange rate).
    I am working on my first one, however, Jeff Briggs (who did the artwork, masters and molds) brought an assembled and painted Van into Pacific Scale Rail in Victoria to run on the small display layout in the window and it looks great :cool:
    I will probaly get about a dozen for my Kettle Valley Division :)
