What should be the right color for the 2 gas bottles (acetylen and oxygen) used for the welder please?
Thanks for your help
Nowadays, Oxygen bottles are blue and Acetylene green. Can´t about tell WW2 but probably the same.
According to the manufacturer, this 1/6th scale set has been “properly researched”…
But the Miniart guys appear to differ…
PS : welcome to (the new) Armorama Pierre
It seems that only period photos will help here.

Je préférai l’ancienne version !
If I cross all I found yes definitly Oxygen is blue.
In fact tanks could be maroon overall with only a coloured stripe on top.
Yellow seems to be the correct colour for Acetylene.
Someone shared this picture with me :
By the way, this Mininiart kit is the one I’m building on
You’re welcome ! More info about these tools :
Messer-Griesheim company is still in the gas-welding/cutting business.
A little history on gas welding.
Just want to say thanks for the great pictures and great information. Putting together a Werkstat company, have a lot of repair tools including gas bottles, and this will make it much better.
