Hauler is known as a supplier of high-quality detail parts for aircraft, as well as other subjects. Once painted the fuel barrels provide a very nice addition to any diorama.
2 sets of resin containing the fuel barrels, with each set containing 6 barrels.
The barrels are molded in resin and there are no instructions contained or needed in the kit.
The first thing I did was to wash the resin barrels in soapy water to remove any residue that may be on the pieces.
I decided for ease of handling that I would leave the barrels on their resin sprue.
I started painting the barrels by first applying Stynlreyz, light gray. I then decided that I would “paint” the barrels with AK weathering pencils.
Next after the primer had dried over night, I applied AK pencil color of Dark Rust, after that blended some light rust color and then used some AK pencil white for highlights. After those colors I applied some Tamiya black panel liner to bring out the molded in ribs and filling spouts on the barrel. After the panel liner had dried, I came back with some more light rust and blended it to colors already applied. The last step was to again highlight areas of the barrel with some white pencil.
Thank you to Hauler and IPMS/USA for the opportunity to review this accessory.
