This broke my heart to find this at the junk yard!  It's was was in bad shape before it went to the junk but it looks like it got wrecked the rest of the way after it got thrown off into the pile.   Its to bad that people don't know what they have some times!  I saved it and I think if I find a tank I could maybe use parts from this to try to make one.   :wallbanging:

OK.  I give up.  Just what is it that you found?  Looks like a small tank with a hole tore at the center seam, laying on a GT hood of some kind.

Wow what a shame, thats the original Blitz model too!!!!

 

Would have gotten a heck of alot more selling the tractor and fogger than getting a measly $ 10 in scrap :wallbanging:

This broke my heart to find this at the junk yard!

 

If your wife asks me what you want for Christmas, I'll let her know.
