I recenlty built this fuel trailer for a diorama and it is a jewel of a kit. The resin fuel manifold and some of the PE handles require a lot of concentration, but well worth the effort. Finally, a manufacturer has heard our wails for aircraft diorama accessories. Thank you CMK.

It looks beautiful and is a very relevant item. However, thats a little pricey for an accessory ($23 US). I understand that alot goes into producing resin kits (or any kit for that matter) but thats a little steep. The fuel trailer will cost more than the plane that I'd put it next to

I think I'll wait to pick one up at a swap meet in a couple years as they work their way out of folks modelling dungeons.
