Hi all,
I'm looking for 1/35 scale US metal water cans (the ones with the large flip locks) without molded-on racks. Tasca's set 35L14 seems to fit the bill, but also seems to be OOP. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
TIA,
Peter

Did you know that the type with flip tops are for water and are enamel coated inside?

Taska is now Asuka. I was able to find them on eBay: Asuka 35-L14 WW2 U.S. Jerrycan Set
BTW: They are very nice. HTH.

Bronco also makes them. I got a couple in my Chaffee kit. Not sure if they sell them separate.

The Taska/Asuka set is by far the best I have ever seen and includes both large mouth water cans as well as gas cans all scale size and properly marked. Available separately!

I hate to hear they are out of production. That is sad. Perhaps you can find some for sale on eBay???

They were so nice that I originally bought several sets so I am still good for the moment.

Asuka lists them as available on their website, so definitely STILL in production!

Great! So I'll keep looking for a retailer who carries them.
Thanks a lot to all who cared,

You can buy them directly from Asuka:
https://tasca-shop.ocnk.net/product/252
I have bought many items from them before without any problems.

If you want to shop in Germany:

They are included in most Asuka Sherman kits too. Possibly use this time to pick up one of those kits? They're exquisite
