At Salute, Renedra released their injection moulded 20 and 40 foot containers (plus barrels and pallets).

Scaled at 1/56, they are a bit smaller than the standard Empress scale of 1/50.
The doors are movable.



Ainsty (~1/62), Renedra (1/56), Unknown but either 1/48 or 1/50,  O Gauge (1/43)

Now I need to get some waterslide transfers for branding (watching the current series of  Fear TWD, some PADRE transfers would be cool).

I really need to take some photographs of vehicles using these for cover.

Been there, done that.  Somewhere in the archives, I have a shot of Marines in a Humvee in Iraq using a container for cover in my "Bridge at Al Muf" scenarios I ran while I was active with Force and Force...  I wonder if I can find it....
