Yep, that's the one I was thinking of.
Thanks all,

Jason, Thanx for the plug ;-)

Dave,

Yes that was me. I only know of one other person who has done small tank cars. I saw photos of his work at a prototype modelers meet. He did beautiful work. Unfortunately I don't remember his name :-(

I made the art work for the wrapper with Powerpoint and printed it on clear plastic. Today I would print it on clear decal paper. The only inobvious detail I did not mention in the caption to the photo of my car is that I cut the tops off the original model's handrail posts, which I was discarding, and used them for the body stantions for the new wire handrails on the tank.

BTW I still have the artwork if you would like it.

regards,

Andy Miller

Jason,
You may be thinking of Andrew Miller's 4000gal Ethyl tank car at: http://www.steamfreightcars.com/modeling/models/millera/ebax3064main.html - if that URL doesn't work, go to www.steamfreightcars.com and click the links at left "Modeling," then "Models," then down to click either "Tank Cars" or "Andrew Miller," and finally "EBAX 3064."
Hope this helps,
Dave Sieber, Reno NV

Anyone with info as to who wrote the article, I would be very thankful to get in contact or even have the article link again.
