# Please help me get started with modeling a solid surface fuel tank for a tractor

I need help getting started modeling this solid surface fuel tank for a tractor. I am having problems with the right to left scale while maintaining the flat bottom. Thanks.

• Could you mark on the mesh where you have problem and maybe add some reference image how it should look? Sep 8 '17 at 17:40

Have you tried scaling in the y axis only? Hit S then y so that it only scales that way.

You can also try using relative scaling. If you hit O then S to scale a circle comes up that you can make larger or smaller with the middle mouse button and it will only scale within that circle.
