Starting build of the 150000Gallon Open Top Tank.


Photo 1 - Parts pages for the Open Top Tank.


Photo 2 - First parts removed from the parts page.


Photo 3 - Form the side wall, curl the sidewall smoothly and glue at the join.


Photo 4 - Glue the water level line strip inside the top of the sidewall. Make sure the strip is even with the top and trim the ends carefully.


More Later,

Continuing the build!

Photo 5 Insert the simulated water internal former from the bottom and seat firmly up against the water level line strip.

Photo 6 I had originally intended to make a bottom plug with a sandwitch of internal former and base. Not a good idea, but with this picture, envision inserting a bottom internal former and gluing, then gluing the internal former and sidewall to the base.

Photo 7 Base attached as described above.

Photo 8 Remove the center from the top rings. Laminate and remove the outer card stock.

Continuing the build!

Photo 9 Glue the top rim to the sidewall. Watch alignment of the interior of the rim vs sidewall.

Photo 10 Completed 150000 Gallon Open Top Tank. Notice the water simulation with the shaded insert. Again, I decided to leave the piping up to the individual builders. Every tank I visited had a different piping system.

Photo 11 Another shot of the completed tank showing details and a better feel of the water simulation.

Enjoy,

Due to input via PM, the watertanks will be released as an alpha release in HO, 1/72,1/144. N and Z scale. That will be followed with an addendum of 1/48, 1/32, and 1/35 scale.

I will announce when the alpha is up for download.

I think your idea of letting the modeler plumb it as needed for his situation will work the best.
