      Nicely done car, Martin!

      How'd you do the nozzle on the hose? Very eye-catching!

        That was built up from three bits of brass tubing soldered together to match up the "hose" (solder), so that it would have a union and then taper forward to make a nozzle.

            Ditto on the nozzle - very nice work.

            I also think the green color on the hose is spot-on.

            Question - where do the floodlights get their power?

              Carbide, kerosene, whale oil, phlogiston, Pu-238.

                We now rejoin this thread with the next car already in progress.......

                Roof stock attached to end blocks attached to floor with support joists in place. Walls cut out to size; doors made and installed; some window castings fitted out as well, but not secured quite yet.

                Ends tidied up and ready for all of the bits to be installed.





                Off and running!

                    It appears to be yet another great start to a nice looking car coming together.

                      Got the underbody roughed in while taking a break from doing the scenery on the layout.

                        Nice! I enjoy doing full brake rigging on the occasional model, but it's finicky and often frustrating work.

                          Thanks, Dave!

                          It is finicky, yet just adds interest to the underbody and if it's not there, it just bothers me to no end.

                          But, it is less finicky in O scale!

                            Martin just read through the thread.

                            Beautiful work on the tank car!

                            Looking forward to the new one.

                              Brake gear adds so much to a model at this scale. Good job.
