  1. Allied jerry Cans WWII (49003) 1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd There’s no such thing as too much fuel on the battlefield unless the enemy is firing incendiaries. This is especially true if you’re planning a long journey through hostile territory. Driving around with a bowser playing tag isn’t always practical or safe, so canned fuel has been the go-to option since the internal combustion engine and war first met. A particularly efficient design was of German origin, and became known by the Allies as the Jerry Can, with the design extensively copied, tweaked and propagated around the world over the years. This set arrives in a figure-shaped end-opening box, and inside are five identical sprues in grey styrene, a sheet of decals and a small fret of Photo-Etch (PE), plus a single-sided instruction sheet that walks you through building the four types of can included on each fret. The rectangular can is marked with the War Department (WD) logo on the sides, and is made from two halves plus top and bottom, with enough parts for ten of the type. It also has a moulded-in fold-flat wire carry-handle that you can cut away and replace with real wire if you’re feeling adventurous. There are ten each of a standard Jerry can design that have separate handles and filler caps, one design with the British War Department logo, the other the American Quarter Masters Corps (QMC) stamped into it. Each one has the familiar triple handle, while the stamped stiffener designs on the sides differs between them. The last type is a two-part rectangular can with moulded-in filler cap, which has a separate PE handle on the fret. For a change, you can make twenty of these, with only a little PE folding to create the shape of the handles. Each sprue also includes a small funnel to assist in filling the cans, totalling five. Markings The cans can be painted any colour real or imaginary, and as they usually had a hard life, you could go mad with chipping, dribbles, stains and even engrave some dents into them with a motor tool or narrow sanding stick. To help with realism, a sheet of decals is included that contains logos for Shell and BP, plus generic Petrol, Gas and Oil stencils to mark out the cans for their intended use. Decals are by Cartograf, which is a guarantee of good registration, sharpness and colour density, with a thin matt carrier film cut close to the printed areas. Conclusion A super set of diorama fodder that includes fifty cans, rather than the forty-five noted on the box. Detail is excellent, and it’s always nice to get more than you thought you would, isn’t it? Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
