Just finished up my rendition of Standard Oil's UNION TANK LINE. It started out as a LaBelle kit and has been modified.\

Cal Scale Brake Cylinder and levers
Juneco metal truck bolsters
Tichy brake wheel, ratchet and pawl, turn buckles, PB wire
Denalb custom cut levers
Kadee 148 Whiskers
Precision Scale tank car dome
Silver Crash Car Works decals
Tru-Paint Socony Red
Bragden's Powders

I totally enjoy kit and scratch-building cars, but tank cars are my favorite.

More to come!

Very nicely done tank car! I really like the colouring you've used, I'm so used to plain black tanks. Nice work!

Good looking car. Very sharp build.

It's only make-believe

VERY nice! How did you do the handrail stakes?


Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)

Hey Everyone,

Thank you very much for the compliments. I really enjoy doing tank cars. I've been amiss this week due to kidney stones. I've been firing them out of me like a chain gun, and have been sleeping it off as best as possible. The handrails are very easy to do. I have to do a set for the next UNION TANK LINE car that I am building so I will do a small tutorial here with pictures. It's so easy, if I can do it, y'all can do it. Please just give me a few days. I'd appreciate that.
