Bobby,

Yes I looked over pictures of your tank quite a bit, it looks really good.  I read on your site recently you had some head gasket problems.  I hope you get it all sorted out in time.  Seeing some of the pics of your tank helped give me the final push to get my tank shells out of the barn rafters after about 8 years of collecting dust and get started.

Here are a few pictures of my frame, it turned out pretty nice.  Some welding then on to fitting tank shells and engine.

Is that a Rodsville Quick Change by chance?

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Andy , it looks like you're coming right along. I'm also building a Flathead powered P-38 Tank but I've stretched mine 20 inches and my head won't be sticking out. Hope to see you out there next year. Wayno

I got the flathead and transmission in the frame this past weekend.  Everything went pretty well, so now its on to fitting the tank shells.  I want to mount the shells before starting to work on the roll cage.  - Andy

Sommetimes it's as interesting to see what is sitting in the background as the build fotos.

I know some of the images I present are cluttered, but so be it.

Progress has been slow, but I got the bottom tank shell cutout and fit after alot of measuring.  Currently I working out details for the steering and roll cage, since I'm pretty sure my plywood & cardboard cage will not pass tech.  I'll try to get more pics loaded soon.  Andy
