Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling



New Products From 2018 East Coast Meet


Each year at our annual East Coast Meet, we're treated to displays of new products from manufacturers producing 1/87 scale vehicles. Following are some highlights from the 2018 show.

Lonestar Models displayed two new Wilson 23' Pacesetter grain trailer kits expected to deliver in May 2018. Kit #6019 comes with factory painted white side and end panels with Nutrena decals for both the trailer kit and truck tractor (not included). Kit #6020 also comes with factory painted white side and end panels with two sets of Cargill decals (old style and new style) for both the trailer kit and truck tractor (not included).

This year, River Point Station had pre-production models on display of their upcoming Ford F-550 crew cab brush fire trucks. Shown above are some of the offerings expected to deliver in March 2018.
