Darren, thanks for the heads up.Nice set of tanks, varrious typs can be used all over in dio's or different types of vehicals. Only wish they included a few regulators to go along with them, would have made a nice set even nicer.

So why don't they come with appropriate decals with content info and danger warnings? This reminds me of say, a car model that doesn't come with tires.

In reality, it is called gas bottles and that is what is inside of the package. I agree that some decals and regulators would have been nice also; but gas bottles are color coded for the type of gas inside, hence no real need for decals.

If you drop Kevin an E-mail or PM I am sure he will pass your comments on to the manufacturer as a way to make the product better and increase its appeal.

All gas bottles come with content and warning labels. Not just color coding.

Actually in the U.S. they are referd to as bottles. Don't know how that ever came to be. I used to work as a welder, and not all bottles here are labeled let alone with warnings. There are some companies that used to but of course once the government or that worthless homeland security gets it's teeth into something you never know. It's been about 23 years since I was welding and time changes things. So for using them now you might have enough labels to keep you reading for an hour or so. The color code is still there so you know what is exactly in a bottle, users and people who refill them, a industry standard here in the U.S. Oxygen will be green, acetaline was always red, and argon gas was grey. Of course there are others but it's been years. When I welded, the company did not label any of them, hence the color code.

Hey Darren, as you suggested I sent an e-mail to thier web site with the idea of perking up the set. Maybe, maybe not, but they don't know untill the suggestion is presnted to them. Went through the web catalog, some very impressive stuff which might make it's way to the fantazy factory.

I was never a welder , but if you go on the internet and hit images you will see that most of the bottles are labeled. It just seems second rate to not have decals with this accessory.
