I'm still here, Tom. Just taking in the comments; I can see both sides of the "argument", which is why I created this thread initially.
That last comment about the big fenders being painted the same color as the tank has me thinking....seems wheelbender may be on to something. I was wondering if there was a way to visually trick the eye. My idea was to paint those raised side panels a different color than the rest of the tank to create the illusion that the tank is as small as the raised panels.
Good thoughts and comments from everyone that has replied so far, I appreciate your input everyone! I'm still torn. Guess I have a little while to decide.
