Re: Tangent GATC 8,000 Gallon 1917-Design Radial Course Tank Car
The teeth gnashing, at least from myself and several others that care about tank cars, was that RC choose such an oddball prototype instead of doing a common car. If they had picked the UTLX X-3 and done if a bunch of foodies, I don't think you would have heard the complaints you did when they did this oddball.

The teeth gnashing about this car was over all the fake-o roadnames RC and IM have issued it in. The list of prototypes for this car was very slim, according to Richard Hendrickson, and some of those he cited had surrounding dome platforms. I have built one (GATX, which is spurious--must repaint someday), and think it is a very nice model.
