Default Valley Forge

Having a go at this;a fuel pod maybe.
Currently in CAD at studio scale(?) based on a couple of photos at the Lunadude website.
Thinking; CNC, maybe a buck or mould as single sides and then fibre glass tooling and fibre glass model.

Anyone know what is inserted in to the triangular spaces - was it a kit part?

Default Original Parts

Here's an image of some of the original parts on the tank's exterior. Most are resin casts, so I'm not sure of their greeblie heritage. I may be able to get some dimensions for you too.

I will try to manage my slipdexia when mentioning you next time.
Those dims would be very good if you can; just the triangle sides would be a good start.
