Blank end.
Very nicely detailed doors.
It makes a good load.
This accessory is a 20ft container in the colours of Käppeli, a Swiss family-run firm founded in 1910.


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 as they are properly applied over the ribs. 

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 Käppeli models.  Also because of its weight and quality it would make an effective desk paperweight.


This version was produced fin a run of 300 models in 2013.

Metal throughout.
It looks good with a Liebherr L 586 in the same colours.
