Phil, keep the Velcro free of fuel overflow and spills and it will last. It will get soft and gooey if left wet. They're easily replaced, just don't pull the tank off but rather roll it off starting at one corner. It will take the paint off if you pull it. When I like to remove the stuff, I use the heat gun and heat it a bit and it comes off easily. Ken

The tank slides forward when you nose it in. The piece of ply protects it from dents and punctures.

That Ring was my introduction to full size CL ships so Ken made me a tank that would be rugged.
Yeah, you'll be glad you did it. I do that to my tanks too. As usual, I think, I learned it from Ken.

Had to order a different tank but finely got the tank mounted and positioned even though the medallion didn't really care anyway lol "thanks guys for the help" Smile
I will be maidening the wildcat hopefully this Saturday weather permitting and I've got a feeling that it's gonna scoot so wish me luck. I'll have a full report once it's done and hopefully a video so till then take care!! (Bandit)
