funtana 40 tank install

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
okay, this MAY be a stupid question, but im building the funtana 40 and installing the stock 11oz tank with it. I've searched the forums and the instructions aren't very clear..(and yes this is my first time building..i have to start somewhere might as well learn here) anyways..... the tank doesn't seem to fit quite nicely. it says to put a support behind to hold it in place, but any balsa ive tried bends way too much. My question is: does the neck of the tank have to go through the hole in the firewall? i can't seem to get it to fit in there, but if it does, it looks to be alot more secure than it is now..the neck of the tank is 2 1/2cm and the funtana hole is only 2cm.......

In mine, I simply put enough foam in the tank compartment so that the tank stays there... The dollar store sells packs of sponges that are perfect for this application, the tank is really wedged in there and won't move. And no, the cap of the tank doesn't go through the firewall in mine either
