This car hauled Tetrahydrofuran, a form of alcohol.
It was made in 1968 and retired in 1998 due to the 30 year rule.

Thanks for looking.
Bobby

Hi Bobby,
you do very nice work on a most unusual tanker. :apl::apl::apl:

How do you get your wire to bend so smoothly without kinking?

Thank you John. I bend the wire using different size screwdrivers. Push the wire on the shaft and slowly bend. Then cut to fit.

Bobby

Hi Bobby :wave:



AWESOME as always !  :thumb:



Too many questions on such a complex build, but ...

What is the main tank body made from ? ... The 'seams' look AMAZING ! :shocked:

& did you 'cast' the dome-ends out of resin or something ? ???



The scratched 3-axle trucks are just off the Moose scale !! :cool:



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: + + +



Si.
