Re: Rob, Yours and Kim's Model B Thread Would be Welcome Here

There are a number of reasons that forums don't take off. It's all competitive just like any other business. Now the newcomer, Facebook, is dragging people away from the old established forums. MTFCA is a bit unique in that regard because they have so many that are anti-Facebook, but there is no den...

Re: Model F Tank material

Upside down works. Some of the readers are below the equator, anyway. All but your last one will flip 180 if you click them.

This is a 1911 drawing. Funny how they toggled around with materials like that.

Re: Model F Tank material

While this is for an '04 Model A and not a F, the design elements may still be relevant. While working with the fabricator on these tanks, we determined from the remnants we had to copy that the original material was likely "terneplate". Since real terneplate is no longer available, we used mild ste...

Re: Quadricycle web page changes

Re: Kristoffy Picture - A question

Sorry for the late follow-up. I forgot that I made the post. P-1's were 1925 - 1931. There were several little variations along the way and I am no authority on the details.
