Would I recomend this product? Yes Price paid? $8 plus tax Score? 9 Pro's: Easy to build, large selection of car types, not to many parts, easy to read directions Con's: Some parts won't fit into holes, looks too fake, some uneccesary assembly req. The kit that I bought was a replica of a CNW FGE (Fruit Growers Express) leased insulated boxcar. Upon opening the package to inspect the body, I found that the lettering was crisp and the details were molded on perectly so they couldn't be broken off (a MAJOR plus for me:mrgreen. The instruction sheet is pretty clear along with a little car bio. All the parts are there, too. However, at first the car was HORRIBLY clean that it just SCREAMED toy, and so that had to be adressed first. Starting with the roof, I began to weather the major bulk of the visible parts. This phase was easily done, even for a newbie like me. I then atached the weights inside the body with double sided tape, which worked out well. The bottom of the car body has hols for the couplers and for the trucks, but there is a seperate rib peice you have to glue on befor you can get the trucks on. Now for the little brake peices. The brake peices are the smallest part of the visible details, and the brake cylinder is in two parts and must be glued together, and then glued into a maked spot. The oil-can looking peice (I don't know what it is) wouldn't fit into the hole, so I will atemt that later. THe blocky peice went in fine, and lastly, the brake wheel won't go in far, but glue will hold it in. I'll post pics later, for the glue is still drying.
