I'm now offering the WSF-P matrial option as this gives a fairly smooth finish, but does lose the sharp edges of features. Recent communications with customers suggest the White-Strong-Flexible material is more than suitable, but does need a primer-filler (Auto-shop, 'Duplicolour') paint to smooth out the 'powdery' finish. I've had to leave holes in the tank ends to allow the liquids to escape that are used in manufacture, but I've supplied the two tank end-caps on a sprue. The king-pin fits a Con-Cor tractor unit. Frosted Detail would be best for the fine details. The wheels are now 'fixed' to prevent manufacture problems. My thanks to Prof. Bill Guegold & Martyn Read for their photos (note, tractor/cab not supplied).

Even at the "frosted detail" price, I would think HO modelers would want several of these unique models for their modern layouts! They should be found around your cement plants, plastic facilities, grain elevators, etc..

I'll keep the photos coming... but these models are so long overdue in HO scale. These aren't inexpensive, but they are quite detailed and AVAILABLE! All I did was clean them up in dishwashing soap, rinse, let dry and then airbrushed the gray primer. Glue the endcaps on and away you go. Ready to place on your HO pike or customize for your dry bulk supplier! Thanks, Barry! I'll be ordering more!
