I found this while doing more unpacking and sorting.  I think I got this in the same box that my Testors P-39 and Cox .15 Comanche were in, but I can’t say for sure.  What I can say for sure is that this is a crime.  Apparently, back in the days of the Space Bug (’52-’58), people who didn’t want to buy a Thermal Hopper would butcher their Space Bug to use an external tank.

Hopefully, the norm was to do a better job than this.  I guess I’ll have to do some work with some jeweler’s files to see if I can correct this hack job and make it presentable.

Got an idea to take you from the crime scene to probate. Laughing With a little cleanup and your own improvised mounting system, (and a decent backdrop - aircraft or test stand to demonstrate its potential use) I think you'd have something unique that could be a potential Cox Engine of the Month winner! Very Happy

that is a Shame to take a Space Bug tank and cut it up for what looks like a nipple that want hold a fuel hose very well if at all ?  Snowman   I guess it suited it purpose at one time and its not a Real Bad job of removing the material .
