I might have made more, but I think I ran out of 0.033 brass wire,

Well, with a stack of framed up flats, off to building a few cars - 1st up - a pair of water tank cars.



Some brass tubing and other bits, some electrical conduit, some stripwood, and we have 2 tanks to put on 2 of those framed up flats.

Got the tank (both of them...) close to done and some framing on the top side of the car. Had a pack of barrel wire cable bits from Grandt Line and not all that much brass stock to make hoops. Now it's time to do the underside of both cars.

Thanks, but I'd like them to be tighter. Tedious stuff to do, but you work with what's available, I'll set them straighter with a bit of clear matte before painting each tank.
