    Default Oil Drums

    Makin' a batch of oil drums.

    Start by eating tuna. I like the little 3-pack size cans:



    Glue them together. I put sand in the bottom one for weight & cut a circular piece of styrene & glue on top.



    Use styrene to make caps & prime



    Paint:



    Next, I'll weather & add drips & waterproof vinyl stickers.



    Here are a few from last year's batch:

    Thanks, you'll learn to hate tuna.

    ... every once in a while I get a strange request for an oil drum. This one came from weirdo from another planet.

    Stupendous... these are the tutorials I love.
    I know exactly where I need to try this, and Dolphin meat makes it even better!

    Thanks guys! Glad you liked the Oil can thingie. I can't claim the idea for myself, got it from a guy on RCC forum, he was using potted meat which I'm not much of a fan of and I think this size tuna can looks best. Over the last 3 years, I've eaten a lot of tuna.

    Here are some of the latest ones mixed in with some of my past favorites, I try to do something different each batch.

    I put them out in the rocks in the spring & leave them out all summer. The waterproof vinyl sticker paper is key for wear and tear. my first batch, I didn't put sand in the bottom & they get blown over easy.
