HO Scale 40′ Hi-Cube Dry Containers

The Aurora Miniatures HO Scale 40’ Hi-Cube ISO Dry Container (45G1) was originally conceived in 2017. It was designed and manufactured exclusively by Aurora and sold bundled with various intermodal rolling stock models of our business partners in Asia and Europe. It received critical acclaim from hobbyists around the world as it was the first HO scale container model with real emphasis on road/company-specific details, along with extra features that make the model come to life, such as operating doors.

Aurora Miniatures is now proud to offer these exquisite containers as stand-alone 3-pack bundles for the North American market, with more paint schemes and container numbers than ever before.

MSRP (3-pack):  $46.99 USD / $56.99 CAD
