108 Gallon “Paper” Drop Tanks

 

$13.99 each

   

 This type of tank was used in WWII on several allied fighters, including the famous P-51 Mustang, P-47 Thunderbolt, and the Hawker Tempest & Typhoon.  During that time in the war, aluminum was scarce… so this type of tank was actually made with laminations of paper, which gave it a unique shape and texture.  This detail has rarely been duplicated accurately on an R/C model drop tank- until now!   Are you tired of taking your model to the field, only to see two others that look identical?  These will make your plane stand out in the crowd!  Guaranteed to increase the “WOW” factor. 

   Designed using cutting edge CAD software, these drop tanks were then produced from molds tooled with CAM (computer aided manufacturing) machinery to assure the best possible fit, shape, and symmetry.   Use for decoration, or make them droppable… your choice.  Mounting system not included (make your own mount  or get a Firepower Pylon mount set) More highlights:

These drop tanks are a perfect addition to your .60 – 1.20 sized aircraft such as the Hanger Nine, Royal, or Top Flite P-51 Mustang or P-47 Thunderbolt.  Compare the quality and detail of ours to other “paper” tanks available… you will see that they aren’t even close!
