I guess this is the best place on the forum to post this..

Yesterday at the hobby store, my GF suddenly got the urge to build a model of a caboose! :lol

So I need help finding a plastic model of a caboose. I'm looking for a static model, not the powered kind. I remember several years back, Monogram released a line of plastic model locomotives, and something along those lines was what I was thinking.

I've been searching online, but since I'm not familiar with what manufacturer makes what, I'm at a disadvantage. :think

Any help would be great!

Heya, Sgt. Schultz!

Here's another possible source:

http://www.walthers.com/

Their catalog is like a phone book!

Did a quick search for "caboose kits" and itr came back with 3233 hits:

http://www.walthers.com/exec/search?quick=caboose+kits

Looking there are probably lots of accessory type things, but you should still get a fair number of complete cars kits.

Hope this helps!

Hey, have you ever gone to "The Original Whistle Stop" in Pasadena on Colorado? Check 'em out, not the biggest place, but they got some cool stuff and you can find some cool stuff for 1/6th as well.
