The chassis needs some sanding to remove the vertical recessed lines. Unfortunately It needs a lot of effort to do it without damaging the bolts, so I "sacrificed" them...
I have also removed the cast in handles and made new ones from 0.5 mm wire.

Looking at the photos at the topic and my collection I noticed that most of the OSE tanks have a hatch fastened with bolts at one of their ends.
This is the end closer to the ladder. It seems that 18546 and 18554 don't sport that feature.
Waiting for Jason to give us some info I gave it a try in HO...

First I used the trimmed end of a scale drum, it looked quite nice...

but something was missing... so I added some detail...

I know, the bolts look a bit over-scale but that's as far as I can go with my pair of glasses :mrgreen:

18533 and 18548 have received their decals, 18560 will follow while 18546 is waiting for decals to be printed.

Weathering made with various homemade oil and Vallejo washes plus various pigments.
Everything was fixed by a spray with Vallejo Pigments Binder
I hope you prefer the result compared to the freshly painted model above :D

Very nice Panagioti. But let me make some thoughts about the circular flange on one of the tank ends.
This detail is missing on the models from Roco and Klein. I modelled this tank wagon fifteen years ago, and I used simply a circular piece of polystyrene without any rivets. That was super for 2003. Now I have prepared 12 of these wagons for painting. I have painted the chasiss black and in the near future I will paint the tanks grey. For this circural flange detail I am thinking on having it photoetched with the help of Michalis Skoularicos, who design and produces photoetched pieces, here nearby Athens. Michalis was in the backstage of every project from THEMA. These days I need some radiator screens for the second batch of Faur, and I could ask him to produce also many of this flanges. Is any interest for these pieces from other forum members?

This is a good idea Stefane. Although I have finished all my models it would be very helpful for all those that will model them at the future.
Does anybody know why some of them don't have that "flange"?
I think 18554 and 18546 seems like they do not have one.
