Default Cermark F-20 fuel tank

Does anyone know of a better replacement. The fuel tank that comes with the kit is a piece.

I don't know which size of their F-20 but I replace all tanks that come with Arfs, mostly with Sullivans. If they don't fit quite right, make it fit with a dremel or something.

I have the .40 and the .60 size Cermark F-20's, and the tanks are junk
on both of them. With the .40....you cant get in there to Dremel out for
a better tank. I bought 3 or 4 tanks for it, and none would fit.

Your better off to do surgery under the nose....cut the bottom off, get in there
and Dremel it out for a proper tank, and put a hatch on it right off the bat.

I had to rebuild the nose on the .60 size....and did put a proper tank in it.

The .40 has that silly oval tank crammed in it. []

You can likely fit an 6oz or 8oz bubblejett tank in the 40 size version. Does not matter much what orientation it winds up in, and you do not have to go nuts padding around it. Take a look at the web site for the various tank dimensions.
