Thanks for your comment.
No idea how to decorate on such a surface, except by hand painting.
Maybe a 3D painting machine?? ;) Don't know... Anyone with a solution?
The web is full of Maersk logo and real Maersk containers images.

PS: The Maersk container in the back on the picture is a genuine Märklin one!! I don't know how they paint it

To cool! Any idea how much materials are needed to build this? With these shipping containers so expensive I'm wondering if this could be a low cost alternative.

Hello, I would say approximately 10 grams.

I once calculated a price for the HO tank, but I do not retrieve the info.

With ABS filament at max 50 Euros per kilo, you come to 50 Eurocents, not considering the wasted filament, tests, errors,...

In US$: approx.70 cents per container
