    I've got a pair of these coming, really looking forward to them. Any clue as to what the other models will be?

    Got them in and I will say they look amazing, specifically the door paint work.

    '

    One critique I have is that the interiors aren't painted, which is understandable but it would have been nice to actually use them as open top containers and do something like a tire load as seen here:

    I understand that the insides will be painted in future releases (after February), not the next release/run.

    January release will be the 'wave' style corrugated side version of the canvas/open top hopper.

    After that will be 40' HC containers and 20' standard height containers, then .......

    All with compatible magnetic system and IBC pins.

    They are some good looking containers, and on my purchase list now. I did contact them about appropriate dates for the containers and I've excerpted some of the response below:

    Maersk1.jpg
    The ISO Type & Size code 4351, marked on this Maersk container was used between 1984 and 1995. So, the initial in service date can be said to be in that timeframe(1984-1995), however, the code was not changed on these in 1995 -they just continued in service with the old code. From 1995 forward, NEW markings use 42U1(new ISO code), for this type open top. Below is a photo for the basis of this scheme

    Additionally, spent some quality YouTube time and it appears that the Transamerica and Cho Yang schemes were in use in the mid 1990s.
