Scale: 1/48

Set includes:

  • 24 acetylene cylinders (short, fat cylinders)
  • 24 oxygen cylinders (tall, thin cylinders)

High-pressure oxygen and acetylene 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, for example, these cylinders were stored in groups on racks fixed to the outer bulkheads in various locations (racks are not included).


These model oxygen cyinders' match scaled dimensions of modern steel "T" cylinders, which are 55" tall by 9.25" in diameter.


The model acetylene cylinders' match scaled dimensions of modern "WK" cylinders, which are 39" tall by 12.4" 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.
