These were sold as unpainted models. Manufactured by Samhongsa of Korea. Bob painted and lettered his for the Chicago & North Western. These models' frames started developing problems in later years (made out of zamac with lead, which deteriorates over time). Bob wrote an article about that in the April 2007 issue of the NASG's Dispatch.
