Received this from Bowser. Has anyone seen these castings?

How can we have seen them?  They announced them 24 hours ago. Bruce

Hope they look better than the 3D models.

Hoping a Bowser employee is on here... . If Fred hasn't seen them, nobody has!

Those Nathan M horns are by far, the worst rendition of that horn ever made. I mean, were talking 1960's Tyco quality.

This is very disappointing, I personally have worked with Bowser/Cal Scale not that long ago and provided them several photos and measurements of horns from my collection. There are way more then enough collectors out there with them these days. I hate to say, if they are anything like the CAD work, they are total trash.

Bowser/Cal Scale can do so much better then this. They have, and they have made some great horns nobody else has made in the past. Very disappointing to see, and no reply's yet on any of the comments on Facebook.

How do you know what they look like? Those are NOT photos, they're computer renderings.
How about saving the rant until they actually ship some product!

Maybe they should post actually photos first then putting out renderings then of what in every instance appears to be a totally sub par product.   

I have seen enough of the new Cal Scale parts to know they match their renderings almost 100%.  They draw them in CAD, 3D print the master and then make a mold to cast them.

The offer is there to help from myself and others...

Yes, I received that via email too. Incidentally, I ordered two PRR cabooses from Bowser. I received an email stating that one of the cabooses was in. I paid on the phone and he told me when it would be shipped.  I have seen nothing, not even the money coming ot my account. Is that normal?

Probably better they not waste their money making these, as it's obvious some can do better.
