I used .008" tinplate and 1/8" copper tube. For me; it was very satisfying to build my own custom tank. Once I got the feel for it.. I built several.



Here's an idea for a dolly..


I thought about making my own tank....still might. Thanks for the picture of the dolly.

I have the Hellrazor 1/2A kit. Not a lot of room in there that's for certain. The kit was really designed around engines of the time which were very anemic. I would love to jam a TD in there or something even more. I don't know if hollowing it out further would allow for bladder use. I'm certain a tank is going to be a struggle.

There are a lot of challenges, and sometimes things work out and sometimes they don't. Nice thing about the Perfect #17 tank is that if nothing else, being of right proportions for legacy .049's, could be readily used on another aircraft.
