    Hello Michel

    A big welcome to ASW I had to look up the map where your are and going by your location it must be difficult to buy supplies.

    Can you post some photos of your tanks and tell us about them please.

    Photo bucket is FREE and very easy to use.

    The best advice I can give you at the moment is start by doing a lot of research here on ASW main reason there is just too much rubbish on the WWW and you can get very confused.

    Then come back with your ideas.

    We often have different opinions on doing the same thing, if you are not sure ask and explain what you are not sure about.
