  Next one on my O2IT list to get built, pretty straight forward, may need to machine tank 
on my Lathe. Like I need yet another Tank car, Yes I do, after that a WP&Y Rly 2 dome tank 
car need's to be done.

OK my eyeball's were getting crossed trying to thread GRANDT nut/washer casting's ontothe grab irons I need for the plow and boxcar.
So I tackled the Charuto aka Cigar tank car.
A length of plastic tubing and a couple of fishing float's later, mounted on a BACKMANN flat car it is coming along.

I found the floats in Canadian Tire, which has a sporting

section and no that is not what I went to get!. Bought the

biggest ones I could find then cut them down to fit.

The cut off's were used to model a water tank I saw in Peru.

The end cap's cone shaped were found in a O2IT drawer, no

idea where they came from. From the looks of it, I figured

two cement mixer drum's were used to built the prototype ?.

The main body is 1&1/4 Inch's in diameter by 3&3/8 Inch's.

Need to add piping then put aside until I have a couple of

other models to paint at same time.
