Thanks, James. I'm in the process of doing the build right now. I made the mistake of not checking things closely against the kit parts and the etch screens provided are for the ZSL-92, not for the M1117. However, a quick e-mail to Voyager and the correct part is on it's way.

Russ,

Plastic water cans have scalloped bases, plastic fuel cans have relatively flat bottoms, so these resin parts are correct.
