5 gallon yes the 2 gallon no, as far as I can see some 2 gallon cans have stamped details on the top.

Rather than trying to compare against someone elses product that may be flawed for what I know, someone give me the correct sizes and we can go from there.

Darren, the AFV Brit cans in the Dorchester were apparently undersized. Have you had a chance to compare these to any other brand (Tamiya, Tasca, Italeri) of British or German cans?

I am not aware of any stenciling on ww2 British fuel cans as they were stamped, however if we are talking civilian usage then yes that would be another matter.

The key to this set will be the providing of decals for the stenciling IMO.
