      The folowing is a Press Release regarding the Container Chassis being
      produced by BLUEPRINT SCALE MODELS, a new level of accuracy in Z
      scale modeling by SEARAILS.

      "...

      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      Introducing a new level of precision and product innovation
      BLUEPRINT SCALE MODELS
      Models produced to exact scale
      using the original blueprints of the prototype
      CHASSIS KING's Trailer Chassis

      Chassis King, Inc. of Clearwater, Florida has appointed SEARAILS
      BLUEPRINT SCALE MODELS to produce its blueprinted chassis and use its
      Chassis King logo in Z scale (1:220).

      Chassis King's CEO, Donald Pratt, was "pleased to provide technical
      support through Jack Smith, Chassis King's Sales Engineer". Smith had
      reviewed SEARAILS BLUEPRINT SCALE MODELS models and said "SEARAILS
      can produce the details specific to Chassis King's designs with an
      accuracy at 1:220 scale that we didn't think could be achieved".
      Chassis King provided blueprints initially for its;

      20' CK20-2 "Flush Back" 40' CK40-3 "Goose Neck"
      45' CK45-2 "Goose Neck" 53' CK53-2 "Drop Deck"

      Each of these four chassis will be available in unpainted sets of 5
      and 10 units, and will be released for Christmas. Additional Chassis
      King models will be introduced in 2006.

      SEARAILS uses the new Color technology of 3D Rapid Protoyping of
      Huntington Beach, CA to produce its scale models in color printed
      material.

      The first Chassis King frame, CK-20-2, is colored red, its wheels are
      chrome, and the tires are black. Examined closely, one can see spring
      supported axles separated from the frame, support "legs" in the down
      position, fifth wheel king pins and bezel faces, and aft mounted
      lights.

      Detail is achieved with the extraordinary 600x580 dpi resolution of
      3DRP's use of the Contex Design Mate CX. Chris Wentworth, 3DRP's
      Production Engineer, was "stunned that a part 1.09" long could be
      produced with such blueprint-specific accuracy." Wentworth says "Â…the
      ZP102 material would not be able to produce such a small part with
      this level of integrity of structure and accuracy of reproduction."

      Jim Shiff, EZ Scale Motors' project designer says " without Chassis
      King's blueprints, and 3DRP's production capabilities we could not
      have produced the Stereo Lithographic files, and attained the
      extraordinary detail in our finished models.

      Special orders for different chassis and axle configurations and
      chassis frame colors are available.
