GFS51 15mm Forward Supply Drummed Fuel Store.
A generic side-stacked row of fuel drums on wood rails (dunnage), over which a weather protection tarpaulin has been placed. The tarpaulin is held in place with spare dunnage, which is the accurate method used by military logistics groups in the field.
The model is sculpted on a base that includes additional spare dunnage, two oil / fuel drums for ready-use, and a garbage can (all well run logistics points have provision for tidying garbage).
This is a highly detailed piece, as shown by the painted models in the photos, and is particularly suited to newer "boutique" games such as Flames of War, where it could serve as an objective.
