Wow, that is one beautiful fuel tank.

How did you made a fuel tank? Did you use a 3D printer?
I want to make a fuel tank for my 1/5 touring car.

If Nolan is still using the same method for the tank that I have, the upper and lower halves are each machined from a block of Nylon, then sealed together.

What kind of adhesive do you use to seal two pieces?

It's HDPE plate stock, very easy to machine but that and the burrs take a lot of time to deal with.
The halfs are "heat staked" together using an alignment fixture and a tool I devised, mating a hobby iron heating element with a teflon skillet.

For Sale


Ultimate RC Motorcycle?

I just had two good years in a row and now I am still struggling to even afford a vacation. Small bussiness blues

I have decided to put this bike on eBay, It is the only one of the first four bikes I made that did not get run. Stubbys is the fifth one, that is all that have been released so far.
It has all the things in the design that were my first conception of what it should be, including the two-speed and a cooling fan. It will be sold with two bodies, spare parts and ready to run.
I will keep you posted.

OK, I did it. Hopefully a collector or two will want it. It would be nice to make enough to help make more.
