   I mourn the loss of these little 1/87 scale gems. The detail is unmatched in 1/87 scale vehicles (imo) and I have enjoyed building many over the years. Apparently Jordan Jackson, the son of the original creator and latest operator of the business, has put in his will that the masters and moulds be destroyed, leaving many of us looking for something to fill the void as well as an unbelievable escalation in prices on ebay.
   Be that as it may, I show here what is one of my last kits in the Bucyrus Erie b-2 steam crawler in a crane configuration. The cabin rotates 360 and the boom operates to a small degree with the use of a rubberized cable. Not much change to the kit except for the omission of the wooden sides so as to view the workings inside better and the addition of a wooden coal bin.

When someone like you can build such a terrific model from his kits, it seems idiotic for Jordan Jackson to destroy the masters and molds. For no apparent reason he is depriving the world of a good product. Can't he just find a suitable guy and either sell or give away the hardware? -- Russ
