Bowser coal hopper question
Author: JasonCNW

Picked up a few Bowser CNW coal hoppers from the local hobby shop and have a quick question.  The box they came in says made in china but on the bottom of the models is stamped made in usa,which is it?

My understanding is the tooling is made in the USA and the model is painted and assembled in China.

I've bought quite a few kits of the BN cars and as far as I know the parts were all made in the USA then. I wonder if they are injecting the parts here and sending the sprues to China for paint and assembly?. They are nice cars and for a while pretty cheap too. I know they are not a accurate car for BN but they look good enough for me.
