    Thanks Bob and Greg. I'll use the varying spacing for containing the tank water pressure buildup on my next tank.
    Glad you guys liked the ice house!

    Dave, your ice house came out looking very nice! I really like the wax being used as blocks of ice.
    Bob is absolutely right regarding the banding.

    Dave,

    The ice house looks wonderful, and OLD. If I might make a suggestion, something I have always found interesting,
    a detail that is easy to model. The bands on these old tanks usually got closer together as you move down the tank
    to compensate for the increased water pressure.

    Thanks Pete.
    The louvers are thin basswood. I cut out the foamboard wall and an opening for the louvers. Then I put a wood frame with verticals around the opening using Aleenes. When set up I turned unit over and ran a light bead of Aleenes down the back for more strength.

    Dave, great build.... as usual! A question if I may.... how did you construct the louvers at the top of the building?

    Merry Christmas!

    Thank you Carl! It was a fun build.

    Scott, I'm glad you enjoyed the build! I try to use easy to get and economical (cheap) parts with my builds.

    Thank you Ray! I appreciate the comments!

    Thanks Mike, the ice blocks came out the way I hoped. This was the most difficult part of the build.

    Dave,

    The ice house looks terrific! Like the can turned water tank, good reuse of household products. Cool blocks of ice.
    Nice delivery van as well!

    I enjoyed the build. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Scott
