Weathered Jerry Cans
JTG Products makes accessory sets for 1/87 scenes. This is a sample of their set Weathered Jerry Cans Set of 4 #DP38.

JTG Products focuses on the modeling of the German Railroad of the WWII Era. Modeling the World War II Eastern Front since 1984, and recently building models for others, in May 2013 an enjoyable full time hobby became JTG Products. JTG Products makes lineside structures such as, but not limited to

Barbed wire obstacle models of wood and metal
Detail parts and sets in various media
Diorama scenes
Freight and containers
Loading ramps
Sand bags
Stacks of ammunition
Weapons emplacements

JTG also combines, customizes, paints and decals commercial HO railway rolling stock and military personnel and equipment for sale. More than German subjects are available and while there are too many to list here, an example is his set Roco Minitanks Patton's 3rd Army 24 Soldiers 2 Sherman Tanks Custom, including everything in the title, painted and ready to populate your layout! The models and services can be found via the website JTG1942 and eBay.

While JTG Products is focused on military modeling, these many of his products are perfect for civilian scenes, too.

This casting represents a pile of jerry cans. They come pre-painted and weathered with a wash.

In contrast to other JTG Products casting I have examined, this casting lacks sharp defined detail.

Clever painting could turn this casting into a fuel dump.

Jerry Cans does not rise to the quality of other JTG Products that I have seen. It lacks defined detail. Creative modelers may be able to use these for creative cargoes.

We thank JTG Products for sending this casting in for review. Please tell them you saw this here - on RailRoad Modeling.

Highs: Cluster of jerry cans.
Lows: Soft detail.
Verdict: Jerry Cans does not rise to the quality of other JTG Products that I have seen. It lacks defined detail. Creative modelers may be able to use these for creative cargoes.

About Frederick Boucher (JPTRR)

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
