    Woah that looks incredible! Don't eat too many thanksgiving leftovers that's gonna be a snug fit haha
     
  12. Not sure how I missed all this back couple months, but looking good. Your tank appears long enough to fit without any stretch required. Keep up the good work!

    Loring AFB is way up in Maine- maybe 7 hours North of Boston.

    All I know with the "Not Your Fathers" is that it works perfectly when one projectile vomits. Gross I know, I can't even smell one of the root beer without gagging.
