Your water tank Thread has got me thinking a bit about ... Water tanks !
I must say that the vintage 'Airfix' kit you used, as you said, could be a 'sensible' BASH size for a smallish 1:35n2 model.
Having said that, I also really like your 'metal' circular water tank build.
And of course, this one of yours as well !
I also like 'wooden' circular water tanks ...
... & for that matter, 'wooden' square truss-rod style tanks, like the Mich.Cal. Lumber Co tank at Camino.
Decisions ... Decisions !
Thanks to your dimensions from the 'Airfix' water tank kit ...
... I have a paper mock-up on the bench, next to my other models, for a 'look see'.
The really fairly small 'wooden' circular water tanks, used by 'The Gilpin Tram' are also a favorite ...
... model of 'Bonzo' the dog ... Optional !
In any case, I've got to be careful not to create a MONSTER !
So def. NO double-deckers for me !!
Small buildings, small locos, small engine-house ... Small water tank ...
... at least that's the theory ?
All very inspiring stuff though !
