Tony,

Your gloves take the cake, hands down.

Thank you Carl.

Galen, at least there's no 'arm in it.

Thanks Mike. Should I bake a cake, or a pie, for the little guys now? Especially since one poor fella lost a couple of arms to help a good cause. Well, maybe not, he'd have to be spoon fed by someone else.
Actually, I can see a temporary scene of that already.....

Taking a little break from the flat car to an oil facility. Tank dimensions .437 diameter almost 1" long. More to come.

This little detail is not finished, but I am, at least for today .
Anyway, I built up the stand out of 10x10 stripwood, and some 2-by bracing. The platform is from Ticky Train. The steps up is scratched. I used 3/64" angle with .015 diameter rungs for the steps, all styrene. I used the ponce wheel to indent the inside of the "angle iron" and drilled holes on every other indentation. There is a spacer I glued in at the top and bottom to keep it together while I inserted the styrene rods through the holes.

Tony,

You call this a “little detail” but that seems an underestimation. It looks anything but little and more than simply a detail. Very nice indeed.

Mike

Thanks Mike, I guess I call it little because I can get it done in under a week of days.

Robert and Bryan, thank you.

Except for some oil spills on the ground, when it is placed on the diorama, I think I'll call this one finished. The 'water' in the bucket will dry clear, to look like water left over from a rain. I hope. I took these pictures with my Nikon P7800 rather than the Panasonic FX35. I think the pictures came out a little more richer and deeper color.


The lids to the tanks. The hinges are made from .010 styrene rod.
