Paris Renfroe of PRD has built the first of his series of M112 Freight Pods. It's a miniature work of art in a genuine rust finish that makes the final 1:12 structure look incredibly like an authentic shipping container. As a matter of fact, the rust finish is so good looking that Paris plans to make a few 1:12 cabinetry pieces that utilize the treatment.
I absolutely love the interior space of this miniature building and the sliding panel doors that deliver great lighting. I think you could use these pods to set up some fabulous miniature scenes, but I expect that people will also be buying these to showcase their collection of Reac or even Vitra designer chairs. Over the next week or so, expect to see how these mini modular freight babies look in a variety of stacked configurations. Plus, Paris will soon be introducing a line of kitchens and baths especially designed for the pods.
In addition to the rust finish, the pods are available in blue, green, gray, yellow and red. And I imagine that Mr. Renfroe is willing to do customized pods for interested customers. Prices for the M112 Freight Pods are approximately $150 - $200 for the basic colors and $250 for the rust finish.
