What he said,
plus the fact that the Luftmeister sets are bringing BIG bucks, Like HUNDREDS of dollars. Screw that, the 6 gallon is the way to go. Just be very careful of rust-out. The area behind the knee pads is famous for developing rust issues due to the trapped moisture between the tank and pad. I've seen many an original beauty leak there. Hard to know unless you peel back the pads.
Good hunting.
