    With such precise modeling it's difficult to believe that it is N scale.

    Very, very nice.

    Hello all.

    To fit my garage with gaz pump, i need a fuel tank.
    The base is a small 2 axles french tank car from Minitrix.
    The railroads typical details have been removed from the tank.

    After that i have made the protection pit with careved plastic cardboard and sqare plastic rods from evergreen.

    I have solded some brass rods to make the pipes.

    Some parts of the car details (valves, support's ...) have been recycled to make valves and electrical box.

    [​IMG]

    The pump and it's motor have been built with a styrene rod and the exact imbricated pipe. A big square section of styrene rod repesent the electrical box.
