In 2018, the Mini-Kit was once again offered in HO, N, S, and O scales.
Frank Hodina conceived the HO scale kit as a conversion of an Accurail 40ft wood reefer model into an FGEX 40ft truss rod car. Working off his queue, Mike Skibbe developed conversion parts for S and O scales. Then, he worked on a complete car body, cast in resin, for the N scale modelers.
All kits included decals from Ted Culotta once again.
Several FGEX and similar NP cars were displayed by Karl Andrasko at the 2019 meet, as seen below.
