Early containers - heads up

FWIW, I ran across a series of early 24 and 35 foot container models on Shapeways - https://www.shapeways.com/shops/samusi01. They look promising but I have no idea where decals would come from.
Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

Thanks, @GhengisKong

I posted them last week in response to a discussion down in the prototype section; link: https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=48452.0

For artwork, all I have is the early "Matson" logo, without any of the extra text below (Serving all Hawaii, etc.). Did most of the work about five years ago, based on what images I could find at the time, and then life happened so the project never got anywhere near completion. I also have 20' sheet and post as well as 20' ribbed... also an odd AML container, with partly completed artwork on that one - I need to go back and revise based on better images I've found recently. I did them because they were seen on the NP and no one was making them, or I'd missed the boat on the Wheels of Time model.

I have a few of these on order, supposedly in transit.  Decals are a problem, you'll probably have to print your own.  The slogans aren't that big a deal, as they can be cobbled up as text.  Sam kindly sent me his "Matson" artwork, so I'll have to see about getting some inkjet decal paper one of these day.
