I mentioned to Steve Oates of The Baggage Train that I'd been looking for some 6mm models of metal shipping containers, back in January. Last week he turned up at the club with sets of resin 20ft and 40ft containers - can't remember how many in each pack, but enough in the two packs to do 2 or 3 stands like the one shown here.
I've based a mixture of 20ft and 40ft containers to represent a temporary field supply depot. I had a spare trailer from a Scotia modern French ferry and was pleasantly surprised to find the 40ft container fitted it exactly. They are painted in Tamiya NATO green, with a wash of flat brown rust, highlighted in orange brown. I'm not sure of the manufacturer but the vehicle is an AMX-30D, the only modern French vehicle I could put my hands on with a crane. It would be great to find a manufacturer who makes a heavy fork lift truck, to show stores being on- and offloaded from smaller trucks for distribution to the front line troops.
Thanks for looking.
