Looks like a descriptive geometry problem.  Look up the dimensions of the T-33 and derive the dimensions of the tank by scaling it off the drawing.

wow, that post is a complete 'threefer.'

you get the same three answers fer one low low price.

"I don't know"

I can guess what a tip tank is...
who is fletcher?

I am also guessing that the t33 is the training version of the f-80

I am off to google...
meanwhile,
can you do pictures?

Does anyone have dimensions for the Fletcher in-line tip tank used on the T-33 and later F-80s?  Designing a static model and I am stymied.
