Thank you very much guys for all your great comments and thoughts, the next step in my progress will be starting the Ro0undhouse 3 in 1 Chemical Car. I'm already seeing changes that will need to be made to the chemical car. I'll explain in the following posts.

Louis, your first car in this fire fighting trio, has come out looking great!
Once you have the chance to weather it up, it will look even better.

3 in 1 Roundhouse Fire Fighting Chemical Car:

Part #2: of the 3 in 1 Roundhouse Fire Fighting Train.
First picture shows in the instructions the kit suggested model build. Second picture shows the Proto type car used for the kit. Already, I see Iím going to need to add the tank hatches. The kit car doesnít look right to me without tank hatches. Also, the kit instructions say to cut the box car body 1-11/16Ē inches from one end for Chemical car use, and use the rest of the box car for the Tower car body. Instructions suggest to block off the cut end of Chemical car body with a piece of sheet styrene, or scribed wooden sheet.
Thatís not going to work for me, so I re-cut the box car body to get both shell ends to make-up the Chemical car body, and Iíll get something else for the Tower car body use.
In the third and fourth pictures you can see the cut I made per instructions, before deciding to use the whole box car (both ends) to make-up the Chemical car body.
Pictures five and six show the re-cutting, and final cuts made for the Chemical car body use. Iíd rather have both ends of the box car used, than to have had an odd looking end made with flat sheet stock.

Louis, no matter how you slice it, it always comes out looking great!

After lunch I glued the two body end halves together. Cut the doors down in width size, and the door guides to fit the new door size. First picture shows the doors cut in width, and the door guides cut to new door size. The larger sections will be used on the Chemical car box. The second picture shows the two seams glued together, and the next picture shows the seam with putty applied, roof walk, and new doors attached to the Chemical car box. Next is to work on the two tanks for both ends of the box.
