DODX 41000 Series Flat Car Production Kits on Hand

The production parts for the DODX car are in. I will work on the instructions and this will be ready to sell. It sure would make a great Christmas present.

Here is the finished model with a M1A2 tank loaded. The tie down chains and shackles are included with the kit. The models on the back track are the pilot models made with laser cut parts. The production model uses photo etched parts with a laser cut acrylic core.

 Here is a close up of the car end.


  1. Looks great! I wish I had a place for one on my little in-progress switching layout. I think these will really appeal to the modern modelers. Congrats!

  2. Norm, rule number 1.... it's your layout.

  3. The kits will be available from www.alkemscalemodels.com
    They should be ready for sale in a week or so.

  4. If you wore your uniform would they have to salute?
