    Well if it was posted before I missed it, so my thanks for the link I copied all the HO ones. I'll have to try a couple to see how they turn out.

    Here's a folding template I drew for an N scale buddy I did some container artwork for:

    The HO scale version of the private name artwork I came up with:

    And the blank 48' Monon containers for you to have your way with:

    And the completed folded paper containers next to the Athearn containers I scanned to get the template:

    I think the German site has some very nice artwork, but this is just personal preference, I think scans of models end up looking better than PDF artwork. So, if you have the ability to scan and edit your own models, try it. You might like it better.

    Pocket drives, Willis, pocket drives. Cheap and easy to lose track of! I use mine as the poor man's Ipod - transporting my music library to work to listen to instead of burning CDs or actually forking over the dough to get a real Ipod! But, it's come in handy for grabbing files and storing them until I figure out what to do with them.

    Ryan why didn't i think of that, thats a neat way to make them.

    Josh you are correct, it was posted over the street, but there are more shipping names now

    If you use the 1/200 models at the back and the 1/100 in the mid scene you should get the illusion of great depth of field, especially if you use Z and N scale buildings as well,
    i'll be giving it a try.
