Hello all

 

I'm looking for a drop tank from the 1/32 Tamiya F-15 kit(s). Does anyone have one they could spare? I'm willing to pay for it. Drop me a line on here or a PM if you can help out. I appreciate it.

Glad you found one.  I needed a 2nd tank as well so I took extra 1/32 Academy Hornet tanks, cut and spliced them and filed and filed,  filed some more, and sanded.....and sanded.  It actually turned out pretty close to the right size and shape.  I still have to scribe and put the doo-dad on the aft of the tank.  I have to be careful with it because I have some pretty thin walls since altering because of the big shape and diameter differences.

GT Resin makes a corrected drop tank, and that was my next step if I could not find one on here. Here's a link to it on Spruebrothers:

Some sell parts of the kit at ebay. Shipping is expensive outside the US.

 

The resin tanks are to heavy.
