Ed,

To quote the instructions "Taper tank ends, using a dime store pencil sharpener. Use care to taper all equally." Sadly the modeler took it a bit too far!

That's just one of the challenging aspects of this kit. I'd love to see a high quality helium car (pre- or WWII era) in resin and I've thought about building a set (they usually travelled in pairs) from styrene and resin (make one "perfect" tank and then cast the 28 or 30 needed).

Regards,
