    Martin,
    I agree, nice weathering. The modified truck looks good.

    Thanks; sort of wish I had thought about capturing the parts in RTV molds but maybe next time. Now I just have to put everything together, add a few nbw's, touch up the paint, add some "extras", and it's off to the next car,

    Nice little flat car! The tank is looking good.
    Thanks!

    Are the rods connecting the end brackets metal?
    Yup! 0.046" steel rod....it was loose in the bottom of the box of wire supplies,

    Bit of progress - decked the floor and added a few bits more.....painted the decking; mounted the tank after a quick priming undercoat, and got the end brackets in place and connected up. Brake wheel and steps and stake pockets, oh my!

    Now I have to come up with a truck for this car.......

    I haven't looked in here for a while Martin, so looks like I've been missing out on all your fine work.
    Excellent progress on the various cars. I do like your tanks and flatcar. Very neat work.
    And nice job on the rivets. The copper strip looks like copper foil used for making Tiffany style lamps. I have several roles of it in my leadlight stash.

    Thanks, Those old Walthers rivet strips are new to me. They look handy.

    It pays to wander around big box stores.

    The filling dome started off an end cap from the plumbing aisle (all kinds of good stuff to be found about there...) and ended up topped with a resin hatch bit I have a mold for in my shop.
Working...
