Ρφπ 18532 had at some point been converted to a Chemical Weeding (ΧΗΜΙΚΗ ΕΚΧΟΡΤΩΣΗ) wagon receiving the 30 73 100 7 317-5 registration number.

Tim has already posted this photo. Thessaloniki old station in May 2000, the wagon appears to be part of a weed killing train.

According to Jason it wasn't a stand alone weeder but it's role was to serve the Thessaloniki based HD-20 Chemical Weeder. There are two of those French built wagons, 20 73 950 0 001 in Athens and 002 at Thessaloniki.

With Jason's help I made a set of decals.

We use the well known KLEIN/ROCO USATC tank wagon.
I have added the handles, treated the chassis and replaced the buffers as I have already described at the P6 built viewtopic.php?f=13&t=98&start=30

I also added, using 1mm wire, the "pipe" at the top of the tank according to the original.

Next I modeled the rectangular open "tank" and the "pipes". I have no idea what they were used for, but they have to be there :mrgreen:
The tank is made of Evergeen 0.25 mm plastic card ( L:30mm W:9mm H:11mm) and the pipes are of 1mm steel rod.

Some progress...
The lever indicator, some metal support of the side tank and two document holders have to be added before the weathering.
