    The reception for these has been great. We are working on some details to 'fine tune' them for our 1/160th containers..... more info soon.

    Our 2nd Factory order of TCK 430 Container Handlers are on the way, this time in BLUE !

    Just received 2 of each model. These are great much needed models. I want to say, I don't think anyone should be concerned that they are labeled 1:150 scale. They look very good in size next to my old "showcase miniture" from years past. In fact, the TCM FD430 will grab on to my containers with no adjustment. The TCM FD430 also has turning wheels in the rear.

    Just got mine, TCM FD430 in yellow. Love it, super detail, grabs most of my containers with no issue. Size is perfect. When I get around to shooting some photos, I'll post them up.

    The Yellow TCM FD430 -single package restocks will ship from the factory in November. Presently sold out in singles. The sets are still available with the Yellow included.
    These are nice models.

    It will hold 45-53' containers that have a lip without any modifications, 40' would require some small strips added to the back forks.

    So, if the gripper fits containers so well that it actually grabs ahold of them, these things must really be close to the correct scale! I would have expected it to be a looser fit.

    I am working on a minor 'retrofit' kit that will allow the 'gripper' to hold 40' and 20' 1/160 container as well.......
