    Good Morning. Has there been an update about Miller Engineering's December release of the Downtown Series of etched buildings? Thanks, Jim

    Jim,

    I just checked the Z Scale Hobo website and the information there says that they would be available at the end of 2020.

    Frank Daniels (zscalehobo) posted over on the AZL board last week:

    "From Miller today: "I am hoping for early next year.""

    Yep. 2021.

    If anyone is waiting for the fire station - old run versions are still available. Don't need to wait for the re-release!

    It's well into "next year." Are there any updates?

    Spring. But don't hold me accountable.

    In the manufacturing climate we're in right now, I don't hold anyone accountable. It's just good to know that is still being worked on. Since Spring is technically less than 3 weeks away, let assume by summer.

    Agreed. He said he is working on porch posts and re-writing instructions - stuff that's on the outside of the main parts sprues. Usually in development of a kit if you're talking instructions, you're very close to done. But i was a bit bullish in previous proclamations so I will offer my tip with an asterisk *timing of release can vary from this estimate.

    Miller update June 9, 2021 ... There's a long story behind the present delays ... he's still in this ... he's still very very passionate about Z scale ... he cares about the community. But, he now thinks "sometime in late Fall." My take is that the supplier delays he's facing can likely take us into 2022 ... so while the announcements are exciting, we will have to simply wait quite a bit longer. Thanks.
