M2 - Virtual container stack 1 - N Gauge

Details

Comes in kit form and requires construction and painting.



20' and 40' container stack. 5 high (simulates 20 containers)



Container transport is now a common part of everyday life. However creating a lifelike yard can be very expensive.

To provide an affordable solution we are producing a numer of Virtual Container Stacks in kit form. Once assembled they simulate 20 containers (in this model 10- 20ft and 10-40ft) stacked up to 5 high x 3 deep.

Our design concept was to produce an affordable life-like container stack showing inconsistencies of container placement and not a solid uniform cast lump. A product that is easy to assemble and once produced integrates and compliments other container products already available on the market. We are not attempting to compete with existing manufacturers models of complete container bodies in either ready to run or kit form but rather fill a niche in the market. The fact is that in any such stack a large proportion of any particular individual container is hidden from view, by only including the parts that can actually be seen we have been able to produce a cost effective means of building container stacks. Of course this means that to sit properly on your layout the stack needs supporting from behind. It would have been easy to point this out and then leave individual modellers to solve this problem themselves but we felt that might put some off. There are, of course, many ways this support could be applied but we have included detailed instructions for one method that we have found straightforward and which uses materials and skills that most modellers will have in abundance. The concept is built around thin card of the type used to make cereal boxes.
