Tried out another "custom" car today. I recently bought a Marx 999 "junker" for parts and it came with a small assortment of rather tired rolling stock. One of the cars was a NIACET tank car that had seen better days..
I wanted something a little different so I started looking at S scale tank car decals. Not much available in this scale but, I happened upon a Herald King decal set for a Sinclair tank car. I looked into Sinclair and their history and it seems back in the day, they had the largest privately owned tank car fleet. So, a little black paint later...
Still have to apply some dull coat and a few more details.
Nice job Mike, one day I would like to try restoration!
