Shipping container colors ODS

Hi All

Im building Trumpys M915 and trailer. Can anyone confirm that black shipping containers were used during ODS?

The instructions suggest dark red [Tamiya 33?] but I’ve just primed it in Badger Stynlrez and I like it.

Any advice would be appreciated.


I don’t see any in black. Lots of red, blue, green and yellow.

If you go 23 rows in from the left, then about 560 along, go right slightly and look under the red one, I’m sure that’s a black one tucked away in there… :grin:… …or maybe it’s a shadow :grin: … And yeah… I’m only fooling around

Thanks Gino. I’ll go with yellow.

Yeah I see it too Johnny! Lol

Not funny! Those are undelivered model kits just sitting there! :package::package::package::package::package::package: :package:

Thanks Frenchy, its a good article.

I remember someone on here talking about the container doors/ locking mechanism being a little incorrect on the M915 and M872 kit.

I’ve done a wordsearch but no luck. If you were the poster, or know how I can find the post, * please let me know.


  • that line sounded a bit like the A -Team intro……

I can’t seem to find 1/35 shipping container decals. Is there such a thing?

I guess so…


Interesting. I tried to buy MSC and another decal sheet which at 5 Euros was fine, but they want 44 Euros to ship the small envelope.

I need to look elsewhere.

Thread drift, but I’ve ordered another M915 to use the trailer as a tandem axle version, to be pulled by an M800 series tractor.

Wondering what to do with the M915. There is the MMK guntruck conversion to make an OIF-era truck. Maybe a Shapeways cab to make a later model pulling a different load.

Any suggestions?

Just ordered the MSC shipping line decals from Unicorn in Belgium. Got a great deal from Erwin, who’s a nice guy to deal with. Now I need all the other decals, numbers etc. Any ideas?
