  • CAM 108 gal Paper Drop Tank

To deprive the Third Reich of free aluminum, the Allies developed paper drop tanks to replace the metal ones.

Cast in buff resin in four parts, this pair of 1/24 108 gallon paper drop tanks are produced with good detail including the fuel line couplings, straps and mounting apparatus.

The castings are marred with several pinhole sized air bubble holes; two small rough areas on one of the castings. These blemishes appear to be easily removed and filled with minimal effort.
