      That is a conventional water heater.

          Bet I built a half dozen of those kits as a kid... would turn 'em into modifieds.

            That was probably the AMT kit... unless you are younger than I think.

              Yep... they were AMT kits... the box cover illustrations might have been a little different, but same kit.
