    Default Anhydrous Ammonia Storage Tank (working....)

    There are a lot of these storage tanks in the grain belt to store UN1005 ammonia. I looked at the FL for these, but I could only find an outdated one, so I figured I would make one. This one is a larger 50 foot unit with concrete/metal supports. All my routes will have this model when done. If no one else is currently designing these tanks for the FL, I may upload it if anyone wants one.

    It'd be an easy enough thing to make, and useful for more than just anhydrous...I'm actually tempted to take a crack at one now. That doesn't look bad for a smaller storage tank, though

    Yep. lately I've been building 3d objects since I was laid off and working pt now. I already added hooks at the top for the boom to lift it. It's about 18,000 gal storage give or take.

    Oh, that's bigger than I thought. The texture made it look like a longer residential-sized tank

    I'm interested, so please do upload it - and thank, you very much! I can see storing some nice tankers by these on sidings.

    Well, here's my attempt so far. I've got a few details to do yet, along with some label areas.

    Looks great. I rounded the ends more on mine to match the actual specs like you did with this one.
