John Kurdzionak posted the following on Facebook, 14 February 2018:
- Friends Models now has available, castings for the 3/4 inch scale 4-4-2 Atlantic "Angus" by Charlie Purinton. All castings are sand-cast from original Carl and/or Charlie Purinton patterns, with the exception of the smokebox front which is by Coventry. I have also published a book that has all of Charlie's "Angus" drawings in it. It's more than 130 pages and fully details all parts. I have organized all the drawings into chapters that have page tabs for easy reference.
