Use an HO model from Herpa or Wiking with a 40' skeleton trailor & shorten the chassis. The OO container will be a bit wider, but if you use a model with a large tractor unit such as the Renault Magum or Merc'Axor the discrepency may not be noticable, especially if the truck(s) is parked with the tractor unit at an angle to the trailor.
Many modern image OO/1:76 modellers use HO/1:87 vehicles & position them accordingly.
Thanks for that. we have a HO Siku
MAN cab that seems to be in proportion to the
OO lorries, so that ought to be ok. I did find
2 x 30' trailers in a local shop yesterday, those
would be too short. We live in British Columbia.
I'll get a couple of 40' and modify them.
I find it curious that there's a scarcity of OO
