Specific Item Information: Showcase Miniatures N 5010 Pacific Electric "The Hollywood Car" Kit.
This one was LOOSLY modeled after the actual prototype and got its inspiration from a 1988 film of a framed rabbit.. ;). This shell kit is designed to fit the Kato power units 11-105, 11-106 or 11-107 (not included). It features lead-free pewter castings, photo-etched stainless steel and brass, a cast resin roof, pre-cut window glazing and Microscale decals. Fully illustrated instructions for assembly and painting make this one a pretty simple build. A lighting kit with instructions is also available separately.

Body Style Information: These kits are designed to be assembled and painted and then installed on someone else's under-frame or chassis.

Road/Company Information: The PE was started as an independent road, in 1911 the SP acquired a controlling interest, and operated the a freight side until 1964.

Brand/Importer Information:
Founded by Joe Warren, in Cherry Valley, California, in 1995, Showcase Miniatures manufactures high quality cast pewter metal, etched brass, and/or laser cut wood model railroad structures, vehicles, and accessories in HO, N, and Z Scale. Moved to Tuskegee, Alabama in 2012, Walter Vail is Showcase Miniatures current owner and product designer. In developing new products, Walter employs different methods such as hand sculpting and the use of 3D computer software. Crafted by a master modeler, who has had his scratch-built science fiction models featured in Kalmbach Publishing's FineScale Modeler magazine, and previously designed products for businesses such as C-in-C Soft Metal Castings, FASA, GHQ, and Ral-Partha Enterprises, the high quality detail exhibited in every Showcase Miniatures product is certainly not a coincidence.
