    Reo Gold Comet

    A lot finished since the last post. Not much more to do before it can go into "service". A fair amount of work to fill the compartments with equipment.

    acid tanker

    Good work! Having pulled tankers, all types for round 13 years yours is not so uncommon. Tanks that size would have organic peroxide or hydrogen peroxide or even sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) placard 1824. Now caustic is heavy, almost 3x that of water so in a regular tank you could only fill it about 2/3 full, that leaves a lot of slosh room in a smooth bore tank. One must bee smoooth on the braking and shifting overall it all that goo comes forward quick and hard. Soo back to the small bore tank, you could fill it full and alleviate the slosh to a degree. Peroxide tanks in paper mills and what not are not that large so a small bore tank would be a full load for some of those applications. Keep on trucking gang !

    acid tanker

    Yeah, thought about the ribs too, helping to disguise the tank diameter. I’ve seen some pretty narrow tank trailers before without ribs, too. Maybe compressed gas or something. Regardless, having it sit on the shelf won’t hurt anything, until the time comes to use it.

    vince, yeah not sure what im going to do with it, thought of putting external ribs on the barrel and making a catwalk to hide the barrel, who knows lol its on the someday shelf , take care buddy

    acid tanker

    Hmm. Trying to think what you could convert it into. Maybe the tank itself could become a load for a flatbed? A tank of that size would have multiple uses in stationary industrial applications, being delivered as new or a retired one hauled for scrap. It could be detailed with the tank base, mounts, piping outlets, etc. Then, the remaining frame could be fitted with a larger diameter tank to complete the original build concept, which was a good idea.

    acid tanker

    what started as a good idea , when the first round of covid lock downs came in couldnt go to hobby store was in between builds i had a bunch of transformers from lowboy kits never use i thought id try making a acid tanker , had a vintage shell tanker kit the plastic was to warped to use to build i used as a donor , the scale of the tank barrel is to small looked too out of place hooked behind a truck

    Beautiful truck! As I mentioned over on the MCM forum, I like the fact you spec’d it with the 2-hole steel wheels, making it unique. Excellent paint and finish. One of my favorite cabovers done well.

    You know him as The Terminator, The Governator, or perhaps just that guy who really, really likes working out in public. And that man, Arnold Schwarzenegger, turns 67-years-old today. You also probably know he's had some pretty boss Hummers over the years, but he's also had everything from a Bentley to a freaking tank, and he actually uses most of them. We rounded up some of his best. You're welcome. (And HBD, Arnold.) 1. Dodge Challenger SRT An SRT Challenger's not a bad way to get to brunch. Here's guessing he springs for a Hellcat. He kinda has to. 2. Porsche 911 Turbo If you look really hard, the smiling face of his silver Porsche 911 Turbo looks like a really happy Terminator. Or, maybe not. 3. Hummer H1 Of course Arnie looks at home in a Hummer. For lesser men, it's big enough to be a home. Fun fact: in an effort to show people he's sympathetic to the environment, he had it converted so it can run on vegetable oil.
