Robert Peeples on the HHMB saw my attempt at an oil tank for the Revell Z06 and offered to cut one for me on his lathe. I sent him all the info I had and today the part came in.

He asked nothing in return for his efforts other than I help someone else out in the future.

So, in return I will be casting this piece and offer free resin pieces to the first 10 people interested in performing this correction of the great Revell Z06.

Here's the new tank dropped down into it's location. Still have a little shaping to do on the new inner fender that's required to make it fit.

In 1:1, it's a pretty tight fit between the firewall and the inner fender. Even after thinning the kit firewall almost paper-thin, I still had to add a little material to the inner fender and file out the kit inner fender well. It's still pretty rough right now but when I get done it'll be hard to tell it's been modified. No concerns about interference with the suspension/tires.
