yes, a searched for this and came up with nothing (that's not saying it's not here but...)

I am doing some cars with an air ride system and I want to know what would be a good way to replicate this tank. I was going to use a moon tank and sand and paint it, but it seems too big. any suggestions, how too's?

thanks in advance.

I think that I've seen some rounded tank ends in some of the Plastruct engineering and architectural lines, you might want to check those out. They glue right onto their round tubing, they are used a lot to model industrial tanks and stuff. Another place you might try is a model railroad supplier/catalog/shop they might have what you want nearly ready to use.

Depending on the size of the tank tacks may work as end caps.
