    Just found a kit from this manufacturer on Ebay. $10.00 cheaper than from their own site (not unusual). Anybody ever built one. They look really good, and style of their structures would certainly fit well on my new layout. Comments, if any, would be welcome.

    I don't know anything about the company, but most reputable manufacturers will protect their customers (hobby shops) by selling their products at full list. If the manufacturer starts discounting product to a price below what the hobby shop pays for the same product, it really undermines their business interest.

    RDA kits are mostly comprised of former Ertl kits. If you can find the Ertl versions, they have the same RDA logo, but also have an Ertl logo.
