A bit like some of the real ones then! That container would look ok in a building site or as a storage unit.

First of all I had an attempt at making a cardboard container which I didnt have much success with but from a distance it looks okay... ish :P

I like the "Evergreen" container, is it full of a shipment of Evergreen styrene strips, profiles & embossed sheet by any chance ? :o

Some great modelling here, especially the weathering on that container & the grafitti on the tankers in other photo's.

Unfortunately it's not, just strips of card to support the container and keep it somewhat rigid.
