The Hudson model kit is reviewed in the August 1962 issue of Model Railroader magazine.  The review states the kit is a, "Rosebud Kitmaster, Ltd." item made in England.  The kit is stated as being all-plastic in design with acceptible 1/87th HO-scale proportions. 
 
Revell Monogram would later issue a set of plastic non-operating steam locomotive kits.  Could this Hudson model's tooling be the same as later found in the Revell Monogram?

Don't have much information regarding the above list of AHM Kitmaster Kits.  They appear in what I believe is any early '60s AHM 4-page 2-color flyer.  The above ad was in the March 1962 edition of Model Railroader.  AHM states the Kitmaster Kits fit HO gauge track, include moving parts, authentic in every detail, kits came complete with instructions and plastic cement.  Prices ranged from 69-cents for the Stephenson's Rock to $1.98 for a NYC Hudson.
