Can you please expand on that comment?
Aren’t the seams welded ???


    I agree with Tom. The Archer weld lines are okay for repair welding but in HO scale (and yes, they do have a set labeled HO scale) they are pretty heavy for production welding. I did use the Archer weld lines on a storage tank which was going to be back from the aisle on my layout, but would not do so for a freight car of structure near the layout edge.
