The other reason to buy the kit is the relatively easy conversion to a single compartment car with Archer rivets and a new dome.  It is nice to have a 6,000 gallon tank as a starting point and a frame that will not to be changed need much.

    Hear, hear. The 6k size is much needed, for many prototypes (you could remove one end dome and add a larger center dome, to represent one of those converted cars), and even more so for insulated cars. But we'll have to wait for that one.
