I  turned this into a truck that sprayed used motor oil on dirt roads.  1/48th scale.

Nice! Is this the Berkshire kit for the truck?

And the oil sprayer.  It's an old boiler than has been bunged.

Great stuff. Is the oil sprayer based on a particular prototype?

No.  Just a memory I had as a kid.  My father drove a 356 Porsche beginning in 1952.  Everyone HATED those cars then and I was beaten up in school because my father drove a  Kraut car.  But my dad loved Porsches and he would avoid those oil soaked dirt roads like a plague.  He would drive 50 miles out of our way to avoid one.  He called it "tar and feathering."  It did little but make a mess.

Love that oily/gritty texture on the tank.

Given the frugality of most rural Yankees if you look hard enough you will find one.  When I was a child, Allendale, SC had an elderly black gentleman who oiled the alleys in town with a wagon and pair of mules.  In my tomorrow box is a Boraxo 40 mule team kit from which I hope to live long enough to model him in 1:48 scale.  For those of us who need to populate a rural post WWII layout with mules the kit is a treasure trove.

Bob Love's son Dennis sent me Bob's unfinished saw mill, his masterpiece he was creating when he died.  I've weathered most of it, but I need help laying out the saw mill floor because I've never worked in a saw mill.  My best buddy Mitch has, so he will come up and help.  But my point is there was one figure of a guy near a giant clamped log with one side cut off.  I made the guy black with a white beard.  Black people have a HUGE history with railroads, etc. but we rarely model our figures as black.  Of course in Maine in 1956, two is probably all I can sneak in.  I have a porter as well.
