For the StuG project some extra details like jerry cans are a nice addition. Making one myself isn’t easy, although the shape isn’t that complicated (one might think) there is more than meets the eye at first.
So I went looking for a STL file and found one, added some “Kraftstoff 20l” texts on the sides and printed a few. After printing getting rid of the visible layers is quite a job. I tried this with several layers of filler/primer, and painted it afterwards. Must say, the result is quite nice, although definitely not full scale worthy. But lets find out how it looks on the StuG in a couple of months.
If you would like to know more about why a jerry can is shaped like it is, and how it came to that, the following video is worth watching.
