      lumber co. H2o car

      side

      side

      side hose

      topside

       Now that I had my pulpwood car done I turned my attention to this European tank car, and it just didn't look right with the American scene so I made my lumber company an stubby tank car, added American 4 wheel trucks, ladders from kids play train, the brackets that hold to hose up are shortened sanding tubes off old 2010 Stanz, cat walk expanded steel is scrubby glued to styrene strip, tank hose is para cord from sewing dept. at Wal-Mart to simulate canvas hose and the fittings are old brass ones I had laying around. Cat walk on the top of the tank is styrene scraped with a hobby saw to give grained look. The lettering on the side of the tank is done with a cameo silhouette I copped from my wife, to let the workers know it for water and not oil, LOL. Fun build

      That's terrific! Nice job... And a creative bash of various bits and pieces to add to the details.

      Well done, but I wouldn't drink out of it.
