Rolling Stock > Tank Cars

The tank is formed from thin plywood wrapped around wooden forms, as is the dome.
The dome cap is a casting.
Plastic end caps are used at each end.
It’s a very interesting model to build up.
Before painting, it’s necessary to seal and sand the wrapper.  I put on about three coats of sealer.

It’s almost a shame to cover up the detail with a coat of primer.

I painted it using Krylon spray paint.   
Dry transfer provide the yellow and silver lettering.
The wheels are Aristo-Delton freight trucks, with Sierra Valley steel wheels.
