First Look

Resin 2 Detail has released this nice set of 50 gallon drums commonly used by the USAAF to service aircraft and vehicles on their airfields. This set consists of two styles of barrels and and some have the tell-tale dents you'd find from these barrels being carted and rolled around the ground to where they were needed.

If you're planning to build an airfield diorama or vignette, this is a nice detail to add around the aircraft to make the scene look more authentic. This set can be purchased directly from the manufacturer here:

My sincere thanks to Resin 2 Detail for this review sample!
