TT Nut 17,360 Gallon Tank

Hello friends, i've a question: would it make sense just offer all the small parts (incl. the tankends) without the big tank itself? So you could use a smooth tube and we don't have the rough surface. Just an idea ...

Another question to go along with the above -

Do most tanks have the same diameter? Because if they do, a set of everything except the center cylinder can be used for many models. If not, it's a bit of a problem.

No, there's a lot of variation in tank diameter (and other dimensions and details). There's just as much variation between tank cars as between boxcars!

Hmmm, thx for the response. I like Taxari's idea but I'll have to put a lot of thought into whether it's feasible - diameter change requires a change in everything attached to it.

Alex do you have a link to any photos of this particular tanker, I just got one and I want to look at adding some rodding under the tank as I saw in a similar tanker photo.
