MA301 M113/ M113A1 detailed bolt/strap in fuel tank (1).

The fuel tank in the Academy M113A1/A2 kits is significantly longer that it should be.  Tamiya has included an integral fuel tank in all of its M113 variants.  The integral fuel tank was replaced by a strapped in version to get over fuel tank leakage problems from the late 1960s. 

So, if you are building all but the earliest M113s you need an accurate fuel tank.   1 per packet. 

The fuel tank now has two fuel lines added

The dimensions for this fuel tank is based on Australian M113A1 fuel tanks.
