    Default Jeremiah cans.......

    Gudday fellow tiny truckers

    I recently purchased some nice little 3D printed jerry cans for use as scale accessories on an upcoming project.

    I thought the print quality and detail was quite good considering they were only $6 AUS each.


    I did want to make them a tad more scale looking though. So after a quick bit of sanding, out came the filler/primer.

    I then sanded and repeated this process a few times.

    Next I tried my hand at air brushing for the first time. I also added some shading and then did a few chipping passes using a piece of foam.

    I ended up spending quite a bit of time on these which probably seems silly, but it was an enjoyable process and I am quite happy with how they turned out.

    Thanks for the compliment mate. However, I am a bit concerned now......

    After checking out the Knight Customs' My Mini Factory site, I agree, they do look very similar to James' design but with a couple of subtle differences.
    I purchased them from an Aussie seller on eBay, naively thinking I was supporting a local RC maker/enthusiast.
    I sincerely hope he hasn't copied James' design or is trying to make money off someone else's STL file.
    Hopefully that's not the case.
    I guess a standard NATO j/can, if done properly, should look like everybody else's standard NATO j/can.
