US Fuel Drums 55 Gals (35592)

1:35 MiniArt via Creative Models Ltd

Can you hear the sound of drums?  55 gallon drums used by the US in WWII.  This is another set in MiniArt's range of diorama accessories, and as usual (fairly usual) it arrives in a shrink-wrapped figure box with eighteen sprues in grey styrene plus a decal sheet containing a bunch of stencils for you to use.

The instructions are kind-of simple and printed on the rear of the box, showing how you build up the two types of drum, one with simple ribs and the other with corrugated top and bottom sections.  The end-caps are both covered with manufacturer's marks inappropriate to this set, but you are advised to fit those with the writing facing inward so it won't be seen.  The twelve drum sprues contain one of each type of drum, so you can make a total of 24 and have six hand-pumps to add as you see fit with the addition of a little wire to play the role of the hose between the hand-cranked pump and the nozzle.

Below the instructions are the painting and marking options with various colours and stencil options from the sheet.  Under those are the paint codes in Vallejo, Mr. Color, Life Color, Tamiya, AK, Mission Models and Hataka, plus the colour names in English and Ukrainian (at a guess).

Conclusion

Lots of US fuel drums.  If you're in the market, then go and buy some for your next diorama or to fill up the back of your wagon etc.  Now what on earth is FOG oil?  I didn't know fog needed oiling? :hmmm:
