Hi John,
I have a John Underhill drawing of these tanks, showing the constructional details, but of course there were several different versions, from the ‘Standard’ model, the Squirrel, Super Squirrel, and Sprint Special. When you look at old photos you will see that some had the top and bottom seams parallel to one another, whilst on the Sprint Special they taper towards the front. I am aware of more than one press tool for shaping the ends, but have no idea where they are at the moment ! Good luck with your quest, and I will post a copy of the drawing to you ASAP.
