      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

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.
