Set includes:

  • 24 acetylene cylinders (short, fat cylinders), in 12 groups each of 2 cylnders
  • 112 oxygen cylinders (tall, thin cylinders), in 4 groups each of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 cylinders

High-pressure acetylene and oxygen cylinders, used for welding and cutting, were widely used by American military forces. They were carried aboard many American ships during World War Two. On Iowa class fast battleships such as USS Iowa B-61 and USS Missouri BB-63, for example, these cylinders were stored in groups on racks fixed to exterior bulkheads in various locations throughout the superstructure (racks are not included).  
The model acetylene cylinders match scaled dimensions of modern "WK" cylinders, which are 39.5 inches (100 cm) tall and 12.4 inches (31 cm) in diameter.


The model oxygen cylinders match scaled dimensions of modern steel "T" cylinders, which are 55 inches (140 cm) tall and 9.25 inches (24 cm) in diameter.


These models were designed from specifications found in various technical publications. These parts are made of acrylic plastic. Acrylic plastic does not behave like injection-molded polystyrene plastic or other resins. Glues for polystyrene plastic, like "Testors Liquid Cement" or tube cement, will not work with acrylic plastic. Cyanoacrylate (CA) "super glue" is recommended.
