Thanks Philip for your comments. The paint booth was worth the making, it's been a life saver. Stopped me from going out doors and waiting for a calm day to paint.

I like the picture of that finished tank car too!

Bernd



Thank you Bernd for the kind comments, as you know, and could see, those straps were a bugger to get right. I found that picture of this water car the best yet! Now if I can follow his lead here.

Michael thanks! The walkway and platform really makes up the looks of this Fire Car. I'm now waiting for a water hose reel to come in to local hobby shop.

Here we are, the first day of 2019! I spent my day making up these handrails for the Water Car platform. I started with bending two pieces of K&S .020 wire #499 for the handrails into shape needed for platform. And, attached them to the sides of the platform using locomotive stanchions made from Athearn for their blue box kits.

Louis, you are doing excellent work on this project. Makes me want to send you a 3-1 kit of another flavor to see what you do with it.

Thanks Pete for checking in!

Hi Larry, thanks for your comments. I'm having a lot of fun with these 3 in 1 kits. Don't know why I left them on the shelf for so long.

Greg thanks, they were a bit of tedious work to get it to the point where I was happy with them, and you just answered my question!

I like the robust metal handrails, Louis. They're going to be bumped a lot when handling the car.

Hi George, thanks for posting your comments. I wanted to make sure the L&R LP's don't fall off the top while fire fighting.
