Scratch Bilt Chem Tankers;

Post by clea on Mon 02 May 2016, 6:29 pm

Everyone has done this...I s'pose, you put some thing together, looks the goods and you are happy with it ....AT THAT POINT.
When i built the tanks, and they sat for years, ....probably would have stayed incomplete for more years; prior to joining the forum ranks; and posting.
I was quite happy with the decals etc...but I kept looking at the discharge points: for these I had (basically) ruined two Beall tankers, just for the connect lines and landing gear
" />.
Sitting on the weekend, kept looking and thinking,...they are not what I had at Knights, Scotts, chemtrans or Cootes....they're not right, on the wrong side...AND I couldn't say the tanks were scratch bilt. So off they came.
Two weeks before Ballarat.
To do piping "I" think you need a cople of things.
"
Stubbies, smokes, some plastic and your collection of knitting needles....(F'ng bonza...any diameter you can think of...Opp Shop 20Cents ea.)
" />
So...make some valves, make the flanges...doing Bulk; most of the time at remote sites....you need a pump...so..
" />
A turbo of a Cummins...and bits.......VOILA..!
" />
So we have a pump.....Shorten this Saga of a update.....need petrol for the pump, bend and assemble the needles, stuck a toolbox on, do the manifold for discharge...Put it back together.
" />
Bit of dirt......NOW it 'sort of' looks like it should.....and apart from the landing legs...Oh, and the tyre carrier....Scratch Bilt.........Damn, now I have to do landing legs, and Tyre carriers.
/>" />

Might go with one the cab overs...benefit of having your own fleet colours......mix & match.
Tank two modified tomorrow........do the finese on both......then see if I can get the A's done.

Cheers.
Tim, Tony...don't sweat it...my pleasure.
