A home made tank also that pee wee is blue anodised incase people can't see that lol.
But it does look a lot like the taifun foxie tank but that only has 3 mounting holes.

I'd say a custom tank, but I think that's paint and not anodized. Maybe they knew how to spin metal? The vinturi would be the hard part.

Maybe but does not have the early .020 knurled head but heads are often replaced.
Very thin and 'rough' crankcase so it is early.
Odd silver backplate I still reckon it is home made though.
Bernie is this in your personal collection?

Almost looks like the backplate is nickel plated.

ah ok do you reckon they could open it up?
If I were you I would offer to buy it off them.
But "Mudhen" might be able to tell you if it is a prototype, he is good with stuff like that!

Bernie, this tank looks very similar, apart from being a TD mounting, it's listed as "Custom Made FF Tank by FF Legend Sal Taibi" whoever he may be! Perhaps he made tanks for the Pee Wee too?

That looks like a Bee crankcase with a Tee Dee front end. It had to be custom machined, not easy as the bearings have to be positioned and aligned perfectly. I don't know if you could slice the nose off a TD and weld it to a Bee and get it right.

It's a stock .020 TD with a custom tank job.
