Like the others, I had to build one with a 53' race trailer...I really like the Volvos...I've built 5 of them...Then they stopped production...Man, I wish I had a couple more...But, anyway, this was the first Italeri race rig I extended...I was surprised at how well the build went...I painted it with Duplicolor gray of some sort, I can't remember...But this is the way it turned out...

Yet another nice rig! You're a machine, you just keep belting'em out. I like that color, real sharp! So that trailer is one of the Italeri race units... I should look into this!

The trailer is an Italeri, but it's a combination of two to get it to 53'...They do look good after a little work...

Very nice build. I started stretching out one of  those trailers a few years ago also. Seeing yours I'm gonna have to finish it. Thanks for the motivation, I needed that.
