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....

Anvil have released a 3D printed pickup truck.

There is no interior detail, however the cab is empty, the side windows are just printed solid so if you wanted a wreck you could just remove the windows, you will need to put in a floor. The versions with open windows fits the two seats in from below.

The resin seems to paint up well, there was some layering on the front window and across the side window (it looks like it is printed at an angle, nose down). This was smoothed with sand paper.

It is about the same size as the Spectre Technical, but is bigger than the Crooked Dice (and the Empress) Land Rovers.

My only current criticism is the ride height, the vehicle must be carrying a lot of weight.

Looks good. You're right about the ride height. It begs to be loaded up with stores or oversized weaponry. You're other option is to say it's one of those low-riders, with tricked out suspension, so favoured in East Los Angeles.
