Can your tank do this ? A total piece of luck that the whole motor housing flips easily out of the way and hinges on the drive chains . Magic

A plywood holding bracket is built and is attached to a removable tray with a 3” hinge. Very simple yet effective . Paintballs are fed into a small plywood box that exit via a piece of overflow pipe tube, into a spring ,into another piece of pipe , into the marker . All very simple and it even works.

A removable face plate had to be developed. Much pondering and not much action.

Eventually Funky Tank Foundry technicians came up with something . A cover that is very easily removable and is fixed with two small screws from below. Champion ! as they say round here.

The marker lifting device , instantly not very good , what you see here does work, but requires a high torque servo . further research and development is required in this field .
