    TEL was a very dangerous compound, but it was a great anti -knock compound, s 2021-10-02_05-46-39~2.jpg 2021-10-02_05-45-17~2.jpg so eyes were closed until the mid seventies, when it was outlawed.

    Sad news. I saw on another board that Bobby Pitts passed away about two weeks ago. Didn't know him but he for sure built some fantastic tank car models. RIP Bobby :(

    Another fine modeler and an all-around good guy.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Pitts. You will be sadly missed.
