Hey tank,

Welcome to the forum. The model is wonderful. Did you scratch build it and if so, are you going to show us the process?

Bobby,
   
       Welcome, Nice build and I like your weathering.  Very realistic modeling overall.  Thanks for sharing.  Can't wait to learn from your detailed build pictorial when you have time to post.  Thanx Thom...

Beautifully done.  I admit a weakness for tank cars as well.   :)

Here are the in progress photos. The body was made using the Atlas whalebelly tank for the center section. After shortening the body, I added a plug on each end from the Athearn 62' tanker, the black sections. The ends came from the original Atlas Kaolin car. After sanding the sections to the same diameter the body was done. The end platforms, bolsters and saddles were made from Evergreen sheet and strips. Due to my photo size, I can do only three per post.
