Scorpio tank - Is there anything a blowtorch can't fix?

Today I fitted up the tank that will eventually go on the Scorpio. Thing was driving me mad as the only way to fit it, was to drag the tank right back (looks completely ridonkulous) So I got to re shaping the tank I have! Anyway turns out that the underside of the tank was completly the wrong shape for my puposes, easy!!  Get a blowtorch, heat the stoopid tank and bash the shit outta it! Fits perfect now as you will agree, no ugly gaps, a nice flat line along the frame, and starting to take shape! The tank which was in undercoat stage (now bubbled burnt paint) will be white me thinks, and I may even put some metallic flake through it. 

Thats todays work done.
