I have four books that I simply do not need, since my modeling interest has kind of settled into the early 50s.  These are all more modern books and likely after the sunset date of this list – but I am not on the BBFCL or the MFCL lists, so can’t post these there.

Tangent Scale Models

"The closest SC&F kit is their 8000 gallon single dome car.  But the issue there is the tank is a radial course tank and the SCCX car in the photo under discussion has longitudinal courses. 

If you are into bashing things together, you could, probably, fit a Proto 2000 8000 gallon tank (they may have even made a Shell version) onto the SC&F underframe.  The Standard Tank Car tank cars had a distinctive arrangement of the safety valves on the tank dome top, placing them 180 degrees apart on the car center line.  That will leave you with a tank (and an undeframe) that don’t match."

Steve, the tank in question is a 10,000 gallon non insulated tank.  So you could start with the P2K but I suspect the length of the tank would end up being too short (and correspondingly, a few inches too round in diameter).

Nice photos! Can you say what these cars were painted? I've seen old O scale cars that were a dark green (maybe Pullman Green), but not sure if that was accurate.

Re: Weathering thoughts

Modelers of WWI and WWII aircraft and armor use different  techniques than most railroad modelers do.   Watching videos of these techniques have taught me many interesting things.   In addition, there are painting and weathering products from companies like Vallejo and AIM and even Tamiya that may be off of our radar.   It is helpful fo check some of these videos out and noting the products used.    Tamiya panel line accent color is a wash that comes in several shades.   You paint over engraved details, wait a bit, and wipe up the excess with a Q-Tip.   Vallejo makes all sorts of mud and rust and dirt products.

I’d like to see photos of the fitting/misfitting of those various model parts.  Sounds like a cool project.

I am trying something a bit different as I have a photo showing an STC 6 six section radial tank mounted on an X-3 underframe.  That freed up the frame for a different project.

 

Hope this is helpful.

Which SC&F kit was the Standard Tank Car kit. 

This tank car manufacturer appears to have been used by a lot of west coast refiners in the 1920's and has been ignored by Tangent and others making the newer highly detailed plastic models.

As many have discovered, InterMountain sometimes has wheelsets in stock, sometimes not. They do have 33-inch semi-scale sets in stock now, but not a huge number of the 12-packs, so anyone needing them in the near future might be well advised to get some now.
