They're the standard 1500 ltr drop tank, Hindenburg tanks are easily identified by the 4 fin tail set up. You really don't want these anywhere near you as the contain asbestos phenolic resin, which if damaged can release asbestos into the air. Surprised the seller is actually allowed to sell them.

Report the Listing in that case. I didn't know about the potential hazardous material content & I doubt Ebay does either? :O

I've asked the seller to clarify if he has the correct licence to sell them or has documentation stating that the hazardous materials have been removed, which of course they can't as the 'apr' is embedded into the structure. Probably why they're selling them as they can't dispose of them and therefore becomes someone else's problem.

That's a shame, I was planning to convert one into a caravan :whistle:
