This is the scale I prefer. Very nice creation. I found the tanker of the My Own Train series too big. Yours is fine.

Nice work Cagri.  I like the size of this much better than the official Octan tanker from the My Own Train collection.  
I think we'll front page. :thumbup:

I like the use of the shell sticker and the train logo tag that some of the train buff's have here.

Nice work.

Sometimes the simplest designs are the best. :classic:
Great job of this tanker, 'cagri', looks like a real tanker with it's stickers and gauges. No overkill here and I agree with The Brickster much better than My Own Train one.
This one would be the right size to go with the 7898 cargo train.
Once again great job ! :classic:  :thumbup:  :thumbup:

I like the clean design. Still, I think the ideal diameter for the tank would be 6...
If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0

Wonderfull !

It looks 'factory' and is much more elegant than the 8 wide MOT octan car...

Good job !!!

This is a wonderful piece of work. It certainly appear realistic compared to those real tankers out there.

Nice MOC. A neat and clean build. To me it looks a bit like a propane tank, which we used to have at our house. For a tank car, I think it would be nicer if it was 6 wide. Now the chassis looks real big compared to the tank itself.
However, the build itself with all the details is great  :thumbup:

I agree with Duq, this is a nice clean design, but it would be improved if it were 6 wide.

Perhaps next year we will have the parts to make that a reality. I mentioned in the 2010 sets thread that the airport tower appears to have 6 wide round panels, but I guess there are fewer train fans reading that.

Hereis a picture of the parts I mean.

Just when I bought a whole lot of 8 wide panels  :sceptic:

Great job :thumbup:

I really like the SYSTEM scale look of this MOC.
Would look nice on any cargo train.

This makes me think of the 2010 Octan Tanker Truck  :laugh:
