[MOC] tankcar with instruction

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and girls.

Today I will show you a wagon I built a few months ago. The first version I built in july 2012 and the first short version of it nearly one year later.


In the beginning all my tankcars were used by z-oil (zentral oil), a virtual competitor of octan oil, because the only possible color of the wagons was dark purple. (the white cylinder panel was very expensive, but I could bought some cheap zurg-sets).

But I hoped that lego give us these panels in dark or light bluish gray. In march 2015 was the time for this part. I found it in set 76038 and ordered 36 of these cylinders in the united states. So I finally could build some gray tankcars:


The gray version drives for a lot of different companys, like "x2" or for a the greek company "oλ" (called o'kronlambda) (filled with compressed air :) )

Now I made a building instruction for this tankcar. I'm sorry, that the text is in german, but you only need the pictures to rebuild it. Here you can find the instruction.

Good looking design - could happily have 10 or so of these behind a loco on my layout :) Grey one looks particularly good to me!
