Dino the Sinclair fuel storage tank
Posted by chocho willy on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 4:03 PM

This a 9" PVC plug that I added 1/8" brass tubing to and put cotter pins in then soldered them in, taped the bottoms with 4/40 die and screwed into the top of the pvc cap that I also threaded. The stairs are plastruct that I cut out one side so that they would bend arount the pvc cap. Installed piano wire through the eyelets of the cotter pins and soldered where necessary. Liked the Sinclair decals with the sayin of " mellowed for 80 million years ". Rememebered as a kid of a Sinclair gas station in Pa that had a Dino on the front of the station that you had to walk through to get to the inside, so I added the Dino just for fun ( jockulairty ) as it maybe. Lot of fun to build and the Grand Kids love ittop of tankrailing postsfinished top of tankDinoDino side pix
