766HO Chicago Park Station; RS Laserkits
- May 30, 2012Aaron,
Jim Vail is right: Ken sold his SCM kits to RS LaserKits. I
looked at the RS HO Structures page:
I didn't see the CP station, so he probably hasn't re-issued it yet.
If you contact RS Laserkits and tell him you are interested in
buying one, he may be able to move re-issuing it higher on his long TO
DO list. It takes time & $ to do a limited edition kit re-run.
Because I REALLY like RS Laserkits and his very well done products
I hate to suggest this, but you COULD scratch build CP Station from the
RMC drawings/article, as I did about the same time Ken was designing &
releasing his kit.
Ken actually got some details more correct than I did, But it also
wasn't that hard to build. It is a very simple structure: Only took a
slow builder like me a week, for my first truly 100% scratchbuilt
structure. Your decision.
Or, maybe someone bought one of Ken's SCM Models CP Station Kits
and hasn't built it or changed his mind. Maybe Ask on the HOn3 list.
