Rocket Express was formed after its founder, Ron Von Werder, discovered that not enough Rock Island Freight prototype car kits were readily available in the market to satisfy modelers desires to properly model the Rock Isalnd Railroad. To remedy this situation, I started experimenting casting freight car parts. In going LLC, I had decided to change the name to Rocket Express Models
The desire of Rocket Express Models is to produce as prototypically correct freight car kits as possible in a way so that they are as customer friendly as possible in the assembly process as can be.
