F i r s t   L o o k


The 1 Gallon oil can was frequently seen scattered on British and Commonwealth vehicles. They were also sometimes carried in improvised racks on the rear of tanks and other vehicles. 

Ten oil cans are supplied on a single length of resin. The casting quality is superb. Each oil can is complete with an open handle on the top, a screw cap in place and nice lip detail around the top rim. Cleanup will be a breeze - snip a can off the resin base using sidecutters or a sharp knife and poke out the wisp of waste inside the handle.

These simple accessories will add authentic detail to your 1/35 scale Commonwealth tank models or dioramas.
