This two-part model kit represents the standard 200 liter fuel drum used by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) during World War Two. Fuel drums were manufactured of galvanized steel through 1943 and were typically not painted. Fuel drums manufactured from 1944-1945 were often made of non-galvanized steel and were painted dark yellow or dark green.
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.
