As cardboard boxes go this is not a bad example. I like the use of text on the end, but wish they had added more around the other surfaces to introduce a bit more interest.

I note the use of clear tape in this version, although most of the examples I've seen, both late period and up to date tend to have the brown packaging tape detail more.

Detail on the whole is a little flat. It's captured the boxiness of the design very well although as I said the lack of additional markings is a bit disappointing.

Most examples I've seen have additional weathering but this can vary according to which theatre of war, or postal sorting office as it's sometimes referred to, it's been in.

All in all a nice example. Should do well, and will no doubt fly off the shelves, especially inside the delivery van. Look forward to the other versions following shortly.

I guess the usual suspects will come out with decal sets to make up for the lack of graphical detail on the sides. I favour dry transfer as I think in this instance water slide may cause problems.

I think conversion to the lighter smaller airborne version could be easily done but I doubt if going to the bigger "cats playhouse" size is possible without some serious additional work.

Opening up the ends or even one of the sides is a possibility and this in turn would allow a lot more detail to be shown. So James are we to see the open topped version soon ?

Hmmm, the holy grail?
the philosophers' stone?
A perpetuum mobile?
Or if it is a really big box, maybe a 1:1 Pz. I?
A new rose for taking new pics?
