I've been looking at the Walthers Cornerstone gas storage tank kit but can't find any info on how tall this kit is and what the diameter is supposed to be? Would like to use it but need to know first if I have enough space to place it on the layout. Has anyone here built this kit and have the info About the size & diameter of it?

I found these two kits (HO scale) on the Walthers site:

https://www.walthers.com/exec/search?quick=gas+storage&x=0&y=0

They give the dimensions, so you should be able to convert to N scale with little trouble.


Hmm... I figure pi r2 will
get you started...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

Sorry Dee, but you are mistaken. Pies are round. Unless, of course, you bake it in one of them square cake pans. 8)

Personally I prefer apple, with cinnamon sprinkled on top. But for you I'll substitute dried termites.

This is a product discussion it needs to be moved to the Product Discussion like every other posting about a kit.  :D

I don't understand why scale specific product discussions shouldn't be in that scale's Forum, but t'ain't my Forum...  :|

Thanks for the info guys! And my take on how different postings should be handle that instead of moving some of the postings out side of the n/z category have sub menus inside this category if those things relate to those particular scales. Be easier to find as it would be right here. Any non-specific questions not related to scale should be outside this category. Just seems like a easier way to do things. :-)
