I am in the process of building some tank cars (Walthers kits) and detailing them more closely to modern standards. I would like to see anybody that would like to share pics of their tank car builds or detailed projects. They don't have to be weathered professionally, or built to rivet counting standards, but I would like some inspiration from you guys! Also, anyone that has built a Walthers tank car kit, whether 40', 54' funnelflow, or LPG cars, I would love to see them and more so if you added further details to them! (And to anyone who hasn't that is interested in knowing, the kits don't differ almost at all from their Gold Line RTR line up, other than the metal wheels, mchenry couplers, and they are already built...)
