500 orders required for model to be produced
Current orders = 043
am working on importing a model with a reputable On3 dealer that has been in the hobby both as a dealer and modeler
for a long time.
Our plans are to produce West Side Lumber Company shays 14 or 15 diecast in
On3 and On30, painted and unlettered. This will be one model since they are nearly identical.
Preliminary design is to have them driven through the cylinder crankshaft as other On3 brass shays have been done in the
past. An alternate pair of trucks in either gauge would be available for about $75 so you could swap back and forth from On3
to On30 at will.
Currently the manufacturer we have planned is a reputable one with a good track
record of producing good running models on a timely basis.
Do not confuse this with MMI/PSC,
it is not and has nothing to do with them.
This is currently planned as a reservation only model,
so please don't sit on the side and think about purchasing one after they are produced. 500 orders will be required to start
the project and they will only be available through us, no other dealers.
The model is estimated
to cost between $600 and $700 without the extra pair of trucks.
I am compiling a list of interested
persons and am requesting your name, address and phone# and what gauge you want and if you want a second pair of trucks in
the other gauge. No money is due now!
Once we have a substantial list of people, we will finalize
the project, announce the dealer and manufacturer. At that time the dealer will request for you to make an official reservation
and down payment of $400 for each model you order. Please note, you will be paying the reputable dealer not me.
The time line from receiving all of the deposits to model production is currently estimated at about a year.
If you are interested please send me your info at firstname.lastname@example.org
The number of preorders
will be posted and updated here so that you can track how close we are to producing the model.
Keep in mind that the more models that are produced the lower the price per unit will be, so tell your friends and place
