Model Spike Drums

These metal spike barrels were prevalent in the '80's after the ones contained in wooden barrels were used up.  Grandt Line N scale oil barrels can be used but a more accurate, cheap and time effective way is to use Evergreen Styrene 1/8" tubing. I simply cut the pieces 2' (scale) tall, thinned the walls to a more protypical thickness, filled the bottoms with Squadron putty and painted them appropriately.
Prototype example from Bellows Falls.
