I'm jealous you visit UK so much. Last time I was there Stomehenge did not have those displays like they do now. And your tank is going to be great!

Looking nice so far, tagging along!

What are the dimensions of the display?

Why do the winch need to carry 100kg?

Thank you. Main tank dimension is 132 x 90 x 60...

The ATI Hybrid only about 20 kg, but I may add another set or a few more LED next year or 2016 when SPS grow winder ...Plus some safety factor concern, so I go up to 100kg ... Maybe a overkill... that is possible ... Hahaha
