Chocolate Buttons

I've cast the ends for the water tanker and at first glance they do look like something you'd find in the confectionery aisle.

Much trickier than casting this pair was to ensure the ends of the plastic tube they were to be glued onto was flat and square.

I spent best part of a day filing, sanding and then squinting at them from all angles before deciding it was probably as good as it was ever going to be and sticking the caps on.

It doesn't look quite like a railway tanker yet because it still needs to be dressed with a filler, ladders and outlet pipes at each end but I feel the project has taken a big step forward.
