There are a wide variety of 40, 45, 48 and 53 foor containers available from a number of different manufacturers, including Con Cor, Walthers, Deluxe Innovations, Atlas and Kato. The containers come in one color, white. The support pillars need to be painted silver as in the prototype. I had a a few dozen of these containers, and I wanted to bring them up to proper specs. This was done through a "mass" masking and painting assembly line as you will see in the following pictures.
|I gathered all the white containrers and began a masking process to isolate the support pillars for a silver spray.|
