Lately it seems more and more Chinese model companies are getting into Wes=
tern markets, and this is the latest one I have come across. Sponsored by e=
-tailer Lucky Model, this nice new set provides a wealth of load-out items =
for modern armored and softskin vehicles.
First is a set of eight 200 liter (55 gallon) fuel drums. These are the ve=
rsion seen with extra reinforcing rings in the top and bottom thirds of the=
barrels. Each comes with a top with bung hole and vent hole, both with plu=
gs in them.=20
Next is a set of four plastic barrels which are used for either liquid or =
dry chemicals by many countries.=20
Four heavy-duty carrying cases are provided, which appear much like instru=
ment cases used for a number of items like surveyor=92s transits or other d=
elicate items.=20
Eight each modern injected plastic water cans and metal fuel cans are prov=
ided; the water jugs have two plugs (pour and vent) and the fuel cans a twi=
st-off cap.=20
Finally, the ever handy .50 caliber ammunition can and 20mm ammo box are i=
ncluded, as they always make handy items for stowing things (I used to use =
one for model paint). The 50s are in four parts and the 20s in six, but all=
have recognizable details on them.=20
All items are nicely molded, but J=92s Works does not provide any decals f=
or detailing the items which is a bit of a shame.=20
Overall this is a nice set and sure to be useful for anyone modeling curre=
nt vehicles.=20
