Wow, those HO mid-50s Chevy Truck kits by Sylvan Scale Models are sweet, nicely priced, and are KITS! Going to be some fun builds from those.

Sylvan makes some very nice kits and they are fun to put together.  Before they came along though there was an absolute dearth of vehicles in HO in the 30s/40s.  Now there's quite a variety and they offer them in both cars & trucks.  Trailers, too...

Lots of great stuff in here!  I'm going to have to spend some time checking them out!

I'm glad this was not one of those threads that was immediately locked.  I like to see what people like.

Seems the report is missing a few products. I know, ExactRail is running another batch of their coil cars that were announced at the show, but its not mentioned in the report from what I can see.

Great new stuff especially the Chevvies and small buildings.

Wow! Another announcement from Spring Mills for another item they seem unable to get in production! Wonder how many years it will take for these containers? Will they beat the B&O and N&W caboose kits out? Come on guys.....how about some news from you.
