    There is also a smaller container ship offered by Kartonowa Flota, the ATLANTIC JAMAICAN, which seems to be available from the usual sources, in 1/300 scale. Here's a link to a picture at the Monduni site:

    Containerschiff Atlantic Jamaican 1:300

    Interesting little model, it has a container crane as is common on the self loading class of these little ships so they can call at ports without an extensive container handling facility/crane. It also seems to have a ro-ro ramp like structure on the stern...guess they can drive the container on a chassis up the stern ramp and unload and stow the container with the ship board crane!

    I've actually just started working on a version of this kit, reduced to my usual scale of 1/600 pictures available yet.

    I'm still hopeful of attempting to design a kit of one of the more typical container ships based on the Maersk line vessels, but that's something that has to wait until I get more familiar with the design programs, such as Rhino.
    Not to mention I haven't a great deal of free time these days....

    Hope this helps!
