End tanks I fabricate out of .120 aluminum sheet metal. If you need to make some more elaborate custom tanks you can make wooden bucks shaped like the tanks you want or even an anvil shape. Take a oxygen/acetylene torch and anneal the piece of aluminum your working on and it will easily form over the buck using a good leather mallet. An English wheel is nice but not needed. Shape and tease the aluminum to get to where you want it and you'll get to where you want.
