Having a Bad Tank Day...
« on: July 21, 2021, 05:06:45 am »
Youtube channel Cone Of Arc has done a couple of vids on bad movie tanks that make interesting viewing for a whiffer:

ConeOfArc again, this time with Frank Tinsley's amphibious tank concept from 1950:

Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

I'd say he'd gone wa-ay past smoking; he'd gone into dermal absorption, ingesting & injecting, as well as smoking, all simultaneously!

That design would work well for Lunar or Mars exploration. Just needs a larger cabin.

And somewhere to store the fuel and air, food and other necessary equipment.

I can't see a 'Boiling Vessel' either.............
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
