This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Originally conceived for use by German forces during WWII, the Jerry Can's design proved to be so good that it was reverse-engineered for use by the Allies. The 20-liter container was tough and compact, allowing them to be easily stowed aboard vehicles. It had a simple but effective lid mechanism with three handles. The early type featured a simple cross-shaped indentation for strength while later types had more complex indentation designs.
