hey hey

my tank came in. i had to go with a lot bigger tank. the one i had didnt hold much water

this tank is a cook pan. lol 8x8x3 inches. it holds 110 oz. which is just under a gallon

all i have to do is drill and tap a hole at the bottom and put a seal top on it

Really wonderful build sequence pictures. With those pictures you should maybe post your plan drawings. I get the feeling others may want to try build something like this. It will make an outstanding display model even without the working water hose, etc.
