Microscale's 60-487 should get you sorted for APL.

I'm not sure whether the Wheels of Time 35' resin container had a decal for Sealand, but until there was a development with a) a container and b) decals, I'd be using 60-311 as my Sealand scheme:

Yeah I was tired (duh) when I posted that. :D APL yeah.

The Microscale Sea-Land scheme I think is after my era (1975).

I have a pair of the WOT 35' containers and the decals, which could be used on the 40'. 8)

There's no decal's for that Maersk scheme?  I can't believe it.

Yeah, me neither!

Microscale does these in HO for A-Line as custom runs, so the artwork for Maersk and a few others is tied-up and last time I asked, A-Line had no interest in either doing these in N or allowing the artwork to be used. Criminal.

APL 48' Big Bird scheme is another one.

I noticed those A-line decals.  So that explains it.  Stupid.

I'm still lamenting the "on hold" status of the Deluxe 70's era sheet and post smoothside standard containers:

Concor makes a crude 40' smooth side (RIVETS!) that is more like 8x8x9.

Meanwhile, I hope MTL will do the Maersk - maybe they'll do the 20' ones too:

Seriously.  +5

BTW everyone, it turns out that Deluxe did a Maersk reefer in the old Maersk scheme discussed above.  I had totally forgotten and then I found one when going through some stuff today.   :D
