Pssst  Ray, -----------  a C-A-R-T has only 2 wheels ---------------- a Waggon has 4 wheels,  -----  so the dictionary tells me.  Grin  Roll Eyes

Ah, I see! I was not aware of that distinction.

The originals had sublime writing on the ends of the tanks. If I see this correctly, is it also replicated with these excellent models, isn't it? If so, I would like to see a picture of it and learn more about the conversion into the model.

Hi Helmut, I bought a 1/9th scale end cap from the Furphy factory and then made a mould of it, cast all the end caps from that.
These end caps had advertising on them, a rather novel way of getting the Water Carts to be noticed.




Over the decades, these end caps were replaced with more writing on them, so now you can date when the Water Tank was made.
The end cap that I have, is from the period of 1942 thru to 1965, that's why I'm attempting to make the 8 different tanks Furphy's had for sale, in that period.

Have you ever thought about drawing the lettering and then etching them as a plate? Then I would stamp the plate. I've already done this with buffer plates made of 1 mm thick brass. You could press that e.B. into a rubber plate.



This buffer plate was created in this way.

I'm curious to see what happens next.

Addendum:

Of course, as a counter-storage you can also take a section of a pipe into which you press your tank end.

Optionally also 3D printing as a model for molding.

Another two for the cupboard, this time it's a # 7 with a pole for two horses, then a # 9 which goes on the back of a Lorry or a light truck. Only got one to go now for the full compliment that was being sold by Furphy, as at 1942.

Eventually finished the Furphy Water Carts as what was being sold by Furphy in 1942, I used an end cap that was in production from 1942 thru to 1965. This is the range they sold then and there was NO number 1 was being sold by 1942, it was a very earlier version of the cart.

The number 6 Water Cart was NOT drawn by a horse/horses, it was drawn by a tractor or a small truck, first one made went to the Royal Australian Air-force, for use in the convoys up to Darwin in the Second World War. It proved so successful, that it was then put into production and became available to anybody who wanted one.

Had to a drawing first and this time used Brass for the trailer and ally for the tank, end caps are just cast resin, the tyres and wheels I cheated and bought some 3D stuff, effin' expensive for what you get aint it, eh. Managed to add removable wheel nuts to. :-)
