    I was thinking of doing some bidding on a few rolling stock cars that are made by Bowser but I don't know anything about this company and if the models are any good. Anyone know anything about these models?

    I've built one of their cabooses...and my brother built a few of their 70ton covered hoppers.

    The finished cars look great. I did not find my caboose kit to be challenging at all. I'd highly recommend their cars.

    Bowser makes some nice, easy-to-build models of prototypes not offered by other manufacturers, and their line also includes the former Stewart models.

    I believe they're also "made in the USA". ;):-D
