This photo is a tank i made with mig welder ,if you look close you can see the whole spool of wire this tank took to seal ,braze is deff. Better .
I think on page 1 the picture is from MIG welded the few spots to hold the tank together.

You said something about using a whole spool that would be MIG.

You also mentioned torch and brass rod. I see the torch nozzle in the picture too, but wondered what you did with the flame braze and the brass rod?

Mostly the tank was done with MIG and if I get thick enough or better at using my lowest setting on my MIG, I can try tank sealer too.

You could or maybe are going to add body filler on out side?

Nice going so far!
