Ahem, then the other night I had it visualised and decided to strike while the iron was hot. lol
Quick dimensions... IRL 2.59m x 2.44m x 6.1m for a 20' 'standard' container, (12.2m L for a 40' obviously) Those translate to 5.4cm x 5.1cm x 25.4cm for a 40' 'standard container', (which makes a 40' container pretty big on a 1200mm square tabletop!) So I made two 20 footers, (12.7cm long for a 20'), rationalising that they had a better chance making it to remote areas of Central Asia in any case.;-)
I would also like to add that there have been several attempts to change the standard container size and there are some regional ones as well with slight variation, but this shape has been in use for decades and will be for some time as there are millions in circulation! (No fellow CHCH peeps, they are not all here. Just all of the traffic cones are here...)
|Using thick cardboard or foamcore cut the floor and reinforcing for the walls|
|Roof is cardstock and the walls are stripped cardboard|
|The second ready to go|
|Glueing with PVA and weights to add strength to the bond|
|More of the same|
|Added cardstock front and split back for the doors|
The scale looks good. My converson was based on 1/48 if anyone cares. Most of my models for 28mm are 1/48 and look pretty good for wargaming purposes.
Would love suggested corporate logos to use! One might have to be Blue Sun...
