Acid containers? Cool item, but other than a factory setting, where would one use them?

In any case, thanks for reviewing them, James!

Could they also be used as wine making jugs, again in a diorama. A bootlegging dio would be interesting

My grandfather used to keep his wine in these things. This item would work in almost any european dioramas with a wine theme.

So, ''acid'' containers looks too much restrictive: in a dio on WWII italian front, put them on a german or US truck, as wine containers, and they are perfect !

These are better known as demijohns or carboys.

Designed to carry a wide variety of liquids but in
many European countries very common in the wine
making process.

Cheers,
Joe

Joe, I haven't heard those two terms before, thanks for the info!

Wine was the first thought that came to mind when I saw these, which I attempted to replicate with the red coloring.

Thanks for all the feedback on these, Gentlemen
