The Rix Water and Oil Tank is designed to represent riveted steel tanks which
the railroads started building back in 1880 during the steam era. Today tanks
similar to these are being used to hold oil and chemicals. The Rix Water and Oil
Tank is made up of 6 band segments which form a complete band. The bands are
then stacked one on top of another until they reach the given height. Kits
include enough band segment to produce either a 29, 43 or 60 foot tall by 24
foot diameter tank. Two styles of tops are offered, flat top or a peaked top.
All tanks are molded in a black polystyrene.
