Specific Item Information: Three underframe retro-fit kits which includes magnets and metal plates.

For Atlas brand 40' dry box containers. These underframes come with three magnets and metal plates to attach to the inside top of the Atlas 40' container. This will add the JTC magnetic system and give magnetic compatibility with JTC 40' HC containers with magnets, JTC 20' std. containers with magnets, JTC open/canvas top containers with magnets, other Atlas brand 40' containers with this kit, and future JTC 1:160 scale containers.

The existing ISO IBC pins are correctly scaled in placement and match JTC containers. Sold in packages to convert 3 models.

Prototype History:
The 40 foot container is the king of the container business. It is the most common standard container size used for international and domestic shipping. Most intermodal operations that handle overseas shipping are optimized for this container size. These containers are typically reinforced for loading, unloading and transportation by ship.

Dry containers are meant for non-refrigerated goods and hence are the most common type.

Corrugation in the construction of these containers yields much greater strength (just like with corrugated cardboard for boxes) but is more expensive to fabricate. Due to the extra strength granted by the corrugation, this is a popular type for overseas use.

Prototype Description: The development of shipping containers reached a turning point in the late 1970s when standardization began to take place. Prior to this time numerous designs and sizes of containers were seen throughout the world. The true intermodal era began in the 1980s with the expanding world economy, Panama Canal ship size restrictions, intermodal railway car (wagon) designs and the setting of ISO standards for international shipping containers.

Today's commonly seen steel all-corrugated ISO containers still have some variations, primarily the doors. The new Atlas model will be a standard-height 40-footer which will exhibit a range of door styles, roofs, and front walls to more closely match the variations in the prototype containers seen throughout the world.

Road Name History:
Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.
