For all their abundance, each has its own color and meaning. Certainly not for gas – it is colorless, but for cylinders for storing them.
I have already mentioned about different standard sizes, just once again as a reminder and building a narrative line
And if you collect all this in one pile: gases, colors, sizes and here you also add branded emblems, then we get a self-sufficient object of artistic modeling
Moreover, all this is not a trade secret and can be reproduced by anyone and on any scale.
Well, we’ll take a look at the products in our favorite 1/35 scale.

Apparently, at some stage, they were tortured to buy products from other manufacturers and decided to pour the resin themselves
