Comment on this model.

This accessory is a 20ft container in the colours of Soletanche Bachy, the foundation specialist company which is part of the VINCI Group.


The model comes in a windowed NZG branded box. 

There were no defects on the review part.

Detail and Features

The container is metal and heavy.  The structure is modelled well and the graphics are very high quality which is an achievement given the ribbed surface. 

At one end the doors are replicated well, with the locking bolts highlighted in silver.  The corner points have holes top and bottom so they could interlock with other containers using suitable pins.  However attaching lifting chains is not so easy.

Quality and Price

It is a nicely made item with a heavy, quality feel and the price reflects it.


This container is a good part to pose with other Soletanche Bachy models.  Also because of its weight and quality it would make an effective desk paperweight.


This version was produced for the VINCI Shop in a run of 300 models and appeared in March 2013.
