I reckon!!! The other things that's jumped out is the jack, and how strong it must be to left the corner of that tank. They look so flimsy when you're gluing them to models. I became aware of the weight of things when helping someone to change a tyre in the middle of nowhere. It was a late model Toyota Landcruser. The wheels weighed quite a lot more than I expected. This stuff must weigh a ton.
