As usual, I've been juggling several projects. Trying to get my 30 year old brush truck completed before the truck is retired. : ) Trying to do something creative with the pump panel on the tanker. Plan to do it so no one will say "Oh, that is from the ___ kit"... Unlike Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, my Mom never had me tested...

HAHAHA understand and now throw a lonestar in the mix

Arm & Hammer deodorant comes in nicely sized oval plastic packages that I've been saving for airport fuel trucks. That might work for your water tank...

Hersheys Cocoa cans are a combination of oval and square, kind of a fuel truck shape, working on a tanker made by joining two together.  Its a win, win....I get the containers and my wife gets cocoa to make me cookies!!!!! I'll see if I can post pictures in the next couple of days

Well I spied the perfect candidate today in my junk pile waiting for Spring trip to the dump.

A G - scale tanker car looks like this one



It has a broken truck and I didn't feel like messing with it on feebay.

Here is what I did with one tanker and a bit of styrene. Just an idea.
