    Hi Guys and Gals,

    You guys like this British 1942 "jerry can"?
    I just asked a seller if it has any holes (I don't see any), price is cheap - what's the current market value for these?
    I thinking about getting it for a future DAK/Afrika display...

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    I remember a dealer selling WW2 dated cans for 10 about 5 years ago!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I am always amazed how quick the allies were to dump their "flimsys" and copy the German design EXACTLY!!
    ( well NOT the Yanks - they doggedly hung onto their design that leaked and split )

    I have a couple of allied ones ( US & British )

    update: received the can this week...nice one! probably around 90% original "sand" paint is still present.
    one minor gripe: there must be a very small "invisible" hairline crack (can't even see it with eyes) at one of the corners - is there any way to "fix it" with somekind of clear filler / "glue" rubbing it with a finger?
    If not, it's ok - won't be using it, but I figured I ask...of course any "visible" correction or welding is out of the question...
    See last pic with "wet-spot" on the upper right corner:

    As far as I know, it was a "barn-find" here in Hungary - so it must've been a German loot - for there were no British forces in Hungary during WW2...
