Crowdfunding: N Scale Fairbanks Morse Erie Built
This is your opportunity fund one of the next Out of the Box projects. For only $10, you will be contributing to the development of a new 3D Printed N scale model. Once all units are sold, the model will go into development. Once Development is complete, you will be sent your model, at no additional cost. If we do not sell all of the allotted units, we will take the number sold into account, and make a decision on whether or not to proceed with making the kit. If we choose not to move forward, you will receive a full refund.
Once we reach the goal, and Development starts, I will email all customers individually who ordered this and get their requirements as to A and B units, as well as what road specific details they are looking for.
Clear parts will be included, it has not been decided if they will be clear 3D Printed or cast in clear resin.
