Cargo bales like these could be found in any zombie-infested warehouse, medieval trading village, war camp, wagon, market square or industrial park. This kit is perfect for all sorts of tabletop games, miniature dioramas, model railroads, class projects or just for fun. Assembly is quick and easy, requiring only a few sheets of cardstock, a sharp hobby knife and ordinary paper glue. This is a PDF product, so you'll need a PDF reader (Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or later recommended). Instructions are provided, including tips and advice for printing at various popular gaming and model railroad scales. This model may be printed at gaming scales between 25mm and 30mm, but probably not much smaller than that.

These cargo bales are suitable for almost any genre. They will work for fantasy or medieval settings, military wargames from Napoleon to post-apocalypse, and almost anything from steampunk to space trucks.

(By the way, "Coton" is spelled correctly! It's French. These cargo bales have labels in five different languages.)

All of the graphics in this product are presented in high-quality 300dpi. This set includes 48 ready-to-print cargo bales (and 3 bonus casks), and 2 multi-layered PDFs so you can customize the look of your models. The multi-layered PDFs give you a wide selection of colors, labels and other details to choose from. You can print these bales over and over, choosing a different look every time. All it takes is a few mouse clicks, and it's a lot of fun! (Download your free copy of the Coach House 30mm Paper Model to see how my texture layers work.)

MULTI-LAYERED FILES: You get all of these texture options:

  • Base color (choose from 10 colors, including white, earth tones, drab blues and greens)
  • Labels for what's inside (choose from several item names in a variety of languages, for exotic-looking cargoes)
  • Various markings such as arrows and hand numbering for cargo handlers
  • Trading company stamps and royal insignia
  • And more!
SINGLE LAYERED FILES: For your printing convenience, you also get 7 prepared sheets of bales. These feature color schemes and other extras that aren't found on the multi-layered version. In total, the single-layered PDFs include 48 bales (24 each in two sizes) and 3 bonus casks. DIMENSIONS: The large bales measure about 0.85" tall and about 0.8" across. The small bales measure 0.75" tall, and about 0.65" across and 0.5" deep. The cask stands about 0.75" tall and is about 0.6" across. ASSEMBLY TIPS: They can be stacked standing on their bottoms or sides. For easier handling, you may glue several bales together. For extra weight, you may want to fill each bale with some clean sand, loose coins or other ballast before closing up the top.
