I built this single shipping container model made from wood. It was part of a larger project, but I can only take credit for this small tiny section. This single element was used as a template to fabricate the other containers that you will see in this video. I double-checked the rules. Although this has a business element, I'm only referencing the container as my project. Although I'm a manager, I do on occasion like to get my hands dirty. Here is the video that shows the full project just in case you wanted to see how this large 5-foot model came together. BUILD VIDEO PS. If you think this is spammy or promotional in anyway, Please let me know and i will take it down.
You know that thing that happens three or four times a day when you need a random name for something, say a new soft drink or a recently discovered virus strain, so you say "I know, I'll use a ship name from Iain Banks' brilliant Culture novels!", and you have to google it, and eventually find the list on wikipedia which is fine, but you really just want a name, or maybe 2 or 3 names so you can pick, and not to have to read through a whole wikipedia page?

My late father in 1945 at age 17 joined the U.S. Coast Guard, and served on the USS General H.F. Hodges, a troop transport. Last year I found 200+ photos of his time in the Coast Guard and had them scanned. The ship traveled around the world a few times and the photos show shipboard life as well as scenes from shore leave, including Egypt, India and New York City. [more inside]
