Not much luck going through my books,
however if you enlarge the photo of the tank car and oil tank you posted on the 29th, take a look at the back end of the oil tank,
it appears to be yet another? fan casing of a larger diameter then the front section of the tank  :bang: :bang: :bang: .

The height of the concrete support is lower at the back then the front.
The supports look straight on the right side but has a taper on the left side.

All in all a most interesting model to tackle after I get caught up with the one's I am currently working on now!

Hi CIGAR tankcar fans  :wave:



I'm sure that    Ken already knows this ...

... but for "Tanque Charuto" newcomers ...  ;)



The 'homemade' tankcar was used for transporting viscose 'heavy fuel oil' I believe.  L:

So now knowing the purpose of that strange 'prototype for everything' structure ...

... you can probably safely bet, that the oil from "Tanque Charuto" went into that equally 'homemade' raised oil-tank.  :cool:



" All in all a most interesting model to tackle after I get caught up with the one's I am currently working on now! "



Right you are Ken  ;)  Eh! 

I couldn't resist digging around on the Net, for some more photos of this interesting structure.

I will have another go today ...

... but yesterdays efforts, turned up this photo, with the raised oil-tank on the far left ( I think ).  L:





I have been umming & arring about the length of my tanque.  L:

But I'm gonna shift out of 1st  :slow:  today & try to M.E.K. the tank 'wrapper' onto my LEGO bricks at last !

Mission Impossible ?  ???

Wish me luck !!



This tape will self destruct in 5 seconds !  :shocked:



L   a   t   e   r   .   .   .



:mex:

Looking forward to the next step in the saga of the Tanque Charuto,

(are you going to bash the side in as per the photos).

 
The fuel tank in the photo was located at Cajamar,

a far more normal looking tank, no air blowers were hurt in it's construction :shocked:.


Found more then a few pieces to start on the oil tank,

but trying! not to start yet another project at the moment

(subject to change at any time :bang: ) to much clutter on my work tables! (4 :bang::bang::bang::bang: )


Will not try to list the number of projects in various stage of construction

2 pieces of rolling stock, 3 diesels & 3 steam engines is all I will admit to at the moment.


Watched a couple of Utube shows on the EFPP but no sign of the oil tank.

They were running a 0-4-2 & a 2-4-0T, with 6 engines in open storage in one run by.


Canadian Ken Eh!

Hi Ken  :wave:



It's time to CELEBRATE ! then.  :bg:





I've been beavering away on my "Tanque Charuto" parts ... till the wee hours ...  :y:

... the LEGO end cones were 'wrapped' as a PRIORITY ! part.  :time:



Another PRIORITY was ...  :java: :java: :java: :java: :java:  :hyp: !!



:shocked:  Looks like the local 'S.W.A.T. Team' have got Wolfy in their sights !  :w:





Some faux-steel arrived by flatcar & was unloaded by the company crane.  ;)

Rubber-bands, BluTak(TM) & masking-tape at the ready.  :dt:

Plus a handy supply of bad language etc. ... Which WAS used OFTEN during the construction !  :f:

&

BINGO ! 
 

I've seen better 'welding' on the 'A-Team' !  ;)

I did warn you about the 2nd rate workmanship though !!  :P



  I AINT WORKIN' WITH THAT CRAZY FOOL HANNIBAL !



Si.

Bad language is just a tool that makes the offending parts/procedure understand how close they are to going into the trashcan.
Also keeps wifes away!.

Looking good, I am working on the under frame, still need to mount couplers and trucks.
Wood floor will be done with 3/16th Inch Cherry Veneer, rather then stir sticks,
as I do have three 250 ft packs each of 1/8th, 3/16 & 1/4 Inch Veneer, need to put some of it to good use.

Almost ready to make a start on the Oil Tank which was located at the shops in Cajamar,
the last photo you posted which was next to the main yard.
The shops were located at the tail of the wye seen at the top of the photo.

:glad::glad:

Hi    Ken  :wave:



No air blowers hurt ... Eh!  ;)



You know what, I wasn't that convinced it was the same raised tank.

I couldn't see the distinctive blower outlet on it.  L:

It also looks very much higher somehow, than the raised tank in the "Tanque Charuto" photos.



The original photo which you Posted has a reasonable view, of at least part of the 'blower tank' ...

... it was even less obviously a 'tank' of any kind in this photo, not being able to see the support structure.





From the angle of the photo & it's appearance, it doesn't look like the support structure is all that tall.

The angle of the photo with the steam engine foreground, makes it look a bit taller though.  L:





Interesting 'there is a prototype for everything' tanks though !

The 'design' of BOTH this tank ^^ & the one "which was located at the shops in Cajamar" looks to be from the same 'designer'.  :P



Some small  :slow:  progress on my "Tanque Charuto" underframe today.  :bg:



:mex:  Eh!



Si.

Just getting organized  L:  to paint the frame,
from the photos it had a Red frame while in service,
sitting on the scrap line it had been repainted Yellow at one time.

:bang: :bang:  it! would have made more sense to have painted the frame before I decked it.
Need to work around that  L:

Mind you the Cherry Veneer deck worked out,
with a "GOLDEN" Transparent Shading Grey brushing added,
with a few darker areas to show up as oil spills I am pleased with the result.

" I do have three 250 ft packs "



Hi    Ken  :wave:



:shocked: :shocked: :shocked:  750 ft ! ! !  ;)



I have a few different cross-sections of Plastruct(TM) for basic underframes.

Mostly I've used these before for my cranes & an ongoing other tank car build.

I decided for the "Tanque Charuto" to have a go with the slightly smaller 4.8mm high sections I have.



Both 'channel' & 'I-beam' profile lengths.  :thumb:





They don't quite fit the underframe making jig I knocked up previously ...

... so a bit of 'packing' is gonna be needed.



I'm a total 'tight wad' with the ol' Plastruct(TM) ...  :P

... 750 ft of that ! ...

... I'd have had to have won the LOTTO !  :bg:



:mex: 



Si.
