Thanks, Mike!

Just getting started on the tanks,


No trees were harmed in the creation of this post, but several million electrons were mildly inconvenienced.

Cradle blocks for the tanks installed...



and test fitted the finished tanks into place.



Tanks are board by board covered over that conduit material with brass hoops soldered up and pressure fitted into place. Some drains w/valves on the one end.

Not something you see everyday with the tanks in a row. Very neatly done.

Inspired a bit by a car that I saw in a photo at the radium factory that was in Canonsburg, PA that had large wooden tanks arranged in a row across a car body.

These are just resting in place quietly but there is more to be done to secure them in place.

Tanks are now strapped down - brass stock with turnbuckles and that's all that I'll use to hold them in place. Got the nbw's in place on the cradle beams now.

Nice work, as usual, Martin.

Can you remove the barrels for painting?

Nope! Rattle cans and air brush will get in and around it all.

Very nice, Martin. I very much like the design. If there had been a prototype in my era Id be tempted to build something similar.

A neat model! What, if anything, would go in the rest of the space either side of the tanks?

Thanks! If you go back a page, you'll see the 2 tool boxes that drop into those empty spaces.
