You will go with these odd hosts, stick with Flickr or Tinypics and don't believe things people tell you about them, Tinypics has been owned for years by Photobucket and is still free. Flickr has changed hands but is still free. Oh and both are very simple to use.

OK re tanks, if you have the Trumpy kit I do believe they are in the box and these resin ones are designed to complement those.

I have the Thunderbirds boxing of the Hun, it doesn't come with pylons, droppers or weapons. I have located some pylons and can get weapons, but the tanks are proving elusive.

OK, if you are going for the T'birds version as far as I know they only used tanks for ferrying so I'm surprised the kit omits them for this reason but for displays they were usually clean.

If going for the warlike punchy versions you could get away with the resin versions and a few Mk-82 standard or Snakeyes or even rocket pods.

I found this: LINK (Out of stock here, but perhaps you can find it elsewhere.) It contains parts to lengthen the Trumpeter fuel tanks which depict the early-style smaller ones.

Edit: Then again, I'm not quite sure if these are precisely the parts you need, perhaps they're for other fuel tanks carried by the F-100. But I read in a review somewhere that AMS Resin (Homepage) did a conversion kit for the early-style smaller Trumpeter tanks. Before hunting this particular resin kit, do your own research which of their products is the one for you.
