The Site suggestions might not be the best place to get this answered. I am going to move this into Scale for you.

What size kit is this? Is it electric or IC? If IC you might have better information flow in the scale or warbird section of RCU.

Being an ole' gasser (just hanging here for something new to do this winter) myself Mike is right. Post your question on these sites. Make note of the kit your building, mfg. etc, and someone will have an answer. It seems like I've seen something about a soft blader type tank being used in 29s but don't remember which site or forum it was in.
Best of Luck with your project!

:) You really don't believe that was a legit post do you? Its not as if anyone building a DS 29 is going to have problems with the fit
of fuel tanks in that monster...they're just tugging at the loose threads on this site

I have to assume innocent until proven guilty. That's my story and I am sticking to it :D

Put them in the wing wing with a engine pumper that also has a pressure regulator ( the old Varsane pump ) for each one . They can pump fuel from 6' away in a B-29.
