http://boardgamegeek.com/image/1812618/highland-cow?size=lar ge

for details of what is required by several people trying to replicate parts for an Out-of-Print board game. The actual colours are not important, they just need to be 5 distinctive colours (or paintable). The actual shapes are not that important, just aesthetically pleasing and functional which would get over any copyright issues.

The "20' Containers' for these ships would be an added bonus (if available in suitable colours or for painting) but wooden cuboids are often used.

Edit: for the sake of clarity (and because I should have made it clear)

Each 'set' of ships and containers is:

5 x 'ships' (of a naive design)
100 x 'containers' (of a naive design, sized to fit on the ship.

Ideally the ships would be available each in a different colour but this might be cost-prohibitive and not allow for cost-effective design/printing. Users would paint the models if in white.

ideally the containers would be available in sub-set sets of 20 in one of 5 different colours which might be more achievable at a realistic price. Again, if not, users would paint the containers.

I do not want to trade in these, I would like them designed and put up for sale to the wider community by the designer in their shop.

End Edit

Please see this listing for 5 container ships in 5 different colors (full color sandstone).


There is also another listing with 100 containers included, again in the same 5 colors, but this drives the 3D printing cost up hugely, making it a rather expensive proposition.

why not just get an original moulded and cast off in resin.
it is quite an easy task and much cheaper than 3d printing
