Default Re: New tank inspired by Silverbear and Tinsmith

Ok, I wasn't going to post anymore pictures till I was all done, but I couldn't resist putting up a couple of shots since I'm almost there.
No more leaks...

It's been a lot of hours of work so far but I've really enjoyed doing this.
As a first tank project I'm quite satisfied with the results.

I know it might not be a style for everyone, but I want to get that flat track motorcycle look that I like.

I've got to tell you that anytime you see guys on this forum who have taken the time to build their own tanks... Bairdco, Silverbear, Tinsmith, Venice, Jim at Creative Eng.,Sportscarpat
Culvertcity,Flybytaco..etc you gotta respect their abilities cause this ain't easy to do.

By the way, I think I want to give it high gloss black coat of paint, even thought the brass looks pretty nice..
Whatcha think?

Thanks for the inspiration guys..

Next week it'll be on the bike and I'll shoot my last series of pictures.
