Plastic Barrels & Cans (35590)

1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd.




Plastic barrels are pretty useful, as they're light when empty, recyclable, can hold liquids that metal barrels can't and are often more resistant to impact without permanent damage.  In addition they don't use up much in the way of strategic materials, so you're onto a winner.  Civilians and military use them extensively, and wherever there is engineering going on, you'll usually find barrels dotted around.




This set arrives in a shrink-wrapped figure box, and inside are twelve sprues in grey styrene plus a small decal sheet.  There are six sprues of barrels and six of cans, and you can make two sizes of barrels from six of them, and two cans from the other six by following the simple instructions on the rear of the box.  The large barrels are made of two sides and a top, while the small barrels have two additional clasps on the sides to facilitate carrying.  The cans are simple two-part assemblies with the nozzle moulded into the left side to reduce seams.




There are a bunch of warning decals on the little sheet that is printed by DecoGraph with good register, clarity and sharpness.  The back of the box also includes painting and decaling suggestions in various colours as well as the ubiquitous blue.








12 barrels in two sizes, and 12 cans.  All in realistic plastic for you to paint and add to your projects.


Highly recommended.
