    I just got 3 or 4 SilverStreak tank car wrappers to fix some of the ones I have with NO wrappers (Walthers), and some really badly messed up ones.
    I'll pull them out next couple of weeks, fix the wrappers, install new couplers (Mantua) and post some photos!

    Here a tank car that was painted up as a gag for a friend, Junior Tschache. Pronounced "shockey". His family was in the oil business years ago so the tank car, truck and semi trailer in the background were lettered for him.

    I've got ton's of tank cars. Primarily Atlas 17,600 gal. & Intermountain 19,600 gal. Corn Syrup tank cars. I intend to install double shelf couplers, Proto:87 wheels and safety striping on all of them. Here is a photo of one that needs a patch out paint job and safety striping.

    BTW, Atlas has some patch out VTGX 17,600 gal. Corn Syrup tank coming out that looks perfect for my prototype. I can't wait to get a couple of those.

    I did not own any tank cars until about a year and a half ago, but have been adding them to the fleet. This group is the Atlas 23,000 Gal Oil Tank cars that I like as well as the Corn Syrup tank cars.

    Painted with Floquil Signal Red and lettered with Oddballs Decals, like having another color of tank car rather than black.

    Since my brother worked for Sun Oil, I had to have one of these, painted with Scalecoat II Black and lettered with Herald King Decals.

    One of two Rohm and Haas Tank cars I did (Decal Set has enough for two cars), painted with Scalecoat II Black and lettered with Highball Graphics decals.

    Let's get this back going again!

    My next group of cars are the Atlas Kaolin Tank Cars, like these for the myriad paint schemes available for these cars.

    Two MOW tank cars that I've built. One lubricating oil only and the other kerosene. More coming along the lines of MOW service. Revenue tanks too!

    It's never too late.
    That tank car is so long it's a wonder it fits on the page :funny: Looks like a great weathering job too.

    Thanks Mike. It was a tough build and hard to paint. I had to build a special holder to do the bottom and used spikes in the truck screw holes to do the top.
