This scale-addon is an eyecatcher for all model containers at scales from 1/14 to 1/16. Ventilation Covers are covers, hiding holes for air circulation at the upper sidewall of containers. According to the applied size- and type-code label on the Container, it can be stated that holes for air circulation are present or not. The following example describes a 20ft standard container with air circulation. This leads to a size- and type-code label 22G1, where G1 stands for the air circulation. Otherwise, unventilated containers are declared with G0.
These Ventilation Covers are scaled exactly in 1/14.5, but their dimensions are ok for models in the 1/14 to 1/16 scale.
