Hi Bobby  :wave:


Great to see one of your tank cars ...

... without its shirt on !  :shocked:


It's good to be able to see, at least some of, the parts ...

... of which I'm sure you have a HUGE stash !  :cool:


Etched-brass 'whatnots', brake-cylinders, NBWs ...

... yer know the kinda stuff.  ;)


Nice lookin' tank car.  :thumb:

Thanks a lot Si, I appreciate it !


The styrene tube is 3/4 inch and was hard to find.

I wrapped it with .015 sheet styrene to achieve the correct diameter.


Regards, Bobby

Hi Bobby  :wave:

I love seeing your paintless construction photos !  :old dude:

(maybe that's why I never get round to painting mine !)  :P  L:  :f:


A question I have been meaning to ask you Bobby ...  ???


... what thou" brass-wire do you use for HO grabs & handrails ?  L:

I guess you have a few different dia. gauges, of what looks good ?  L:

Thanks Si !

Tichy has a great selection of grabs, end steps and wire.


The car is painted and decaled, but the photo is too big to post.

I'll try to cut it down.


Regards, Bobby
