    OK..you all know how my mind works....LOL:eek::rolleyes:o_O:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Carefully cut the 'lid' off...so you could set it back on. Drill some small holes up through the bottom of the car....maybe even in the 'lid'.

    Go to Amazon and buy a bunch of these....

    At night crack one and drop it in the cask...put the lid back on....fire up the train !!!

    Be sure to get videos !! (y)(y):LOL::LOL::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::coffee::coffee:

    A new gon has arrived on scene. For now, it has a pipe load

    It comes with a lid (Coil steel hoods) and decals. Some assembly required :D I'll probably do the decals and assembly just to do it

    Decal work on the gons continues. No new pics there. They one other covered hopper decal project that I think I'll wait until it gets a coat of flat clear and new trucks/couplers/metal wheels on it to post.

    Wow, that's a nice weathering job on that tank car! Reminds me of some of the (smaller) tank cars parked at the chemical plant where my dad worked.

    It also brings back memories of the smell of natural gas (actually, the mercaptan odorant that is added to otherwise-odorless NG, and was manufactured down the road from his plant.) It is interesting how smells are some of our strongest memories: the sense of taste/smell (chemical detection/identification) was one of the earliest senses developed in the primitive animal kingdom.

    Well, yeah, I agree, nice weathering job on the tank car but I can't take credit for that. It's photo on the cover of a brochure for some weathering products. My skills at weathering are about 99% below that level.
