High quality casting; versatile use in dioramas or on a vehicle; good detail; includes decals.

Disadvantages: None noted.
Recommendation: Recommended.


Hauler has recently released a set of six conventionally cast resin 1:35 scale WWII German 5 litre oil cans.



These are versatile little accessories for on-vehicle stowage, dioramas or vignettes.

The resin oil cans are cast onto a strip at their base. A razor saw and sanding stick will make short work of removing the parts.



Casting is perfect on my sample and detail is well done, including raised lettering – Jurgens 5 Ltr - on the outside of the cans.



Another nice touch is the inclusion of decals. The yellow strips have the capacity of the can printed in black. The decal strips should be applied around the top of the oil cans.


Thanks to Hauler for the sample.
