BRAWA

Construction

Ready-to-run. Twin-unit set.

There are representations of 12 pairs of clamps on each half set, each in a fixed position. Ten pairs of these clamps have pin holes. These pin holes align with the pins on the supplied swap bodies and containers. They also align with the pins on 40ft containers, allowing one 40ft container per half-set. Unfortunately, the pins on 30ft containers (such as those made by Albedo) do not align with any pin holes, either for mounting the containers singularly or in combination with a 20ft container. The pin holes are 1mm diameter and take pins of 1mm depth.
