This two-part model kit represents the standard 200 liter fuel drum used by the German Army (Wehrmacht) during World War Two. Fuel drums were manufactured of galvanized steel through 1943 and were not painted. Fuel drums manufactured from 1944-1945 were often made of non-galvanized steel were painted dark yellow or dark green. Although there were many variations in details between drums depending on manufacturer, this model is based on a surviving example.
This model is 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.
