These were cut somewhat undersized to allow for expansion when I tidied up the edges using a square metal file. Also added to the base plate were some of the tank recovery parts shaved from the Tamiya kit. I also shaved the fuel strap ratchet buckles from the kit drums. These were set aside for attaching to some lead foil straps later on. Some of the KFOR Challengers I’ve seen did not carry the extra fuel tanks, so I decided to leave them empty with just the straps in place.

The top and bottom edge of the bin was trimmed with styrene rod and the sides detailed with some strips. 020in. rod; again I drilled a small hole in the C bracket and the base for the 45-degree supporting bar.
