Keeping the color theme thru-out the trailer starting with the frame. The walls would be pretty much cut/dry but on a kit this size there are numerous ejector marks , using some 1/2 inch wood rub rails to cover a few on the lower walls the rest will have to be filled in , I wanted the roof to be removable , we'll see , there are about 42 to fill in not including the roof . I noticed John from Can-Am Garage did something to his walls maybe he could elaborate.

Decided to just cover it all in balsa , I always wanted to do this inside a big rig trailer , it works pretty good

weathered the floor wood , now it makes the walls to bright, need some light grime to tone it down some

Dang! You got me beat!

I used shelf paper for the inside of the walls. The decking was painted and then I added a strip of my checkerboard shelf paper (just about impossible for me to find anymore) down the middle.

Mine is patterned after a Haulmark trailer. The walls are no where near perfect as I did this after the trailer was assembled.

I got carried away around the spare tire well. :(

I even put checkboarding on top of the fifth wheel area.

One of these days, I've gotta work on it some more.

Ifound out the hard way Dupli-color does not like to go over Testors lacquer system. 3rd paint job also meant reworking the wood inside , good thing I only tried 1 side to see how it would work. Its all done , just needs detailing and final assy......

The roof is dark blue as is the nose cap. I'll have to figure how to get some blue on the sides , maybe large lettering

That looks cool! Can you see it going down the road as a 1:1?!?! You'd create a scene for sure!

Nice work!

Need to put the last wall on but the back door was just cleared so I have to wait , again , its the 1 thing I forgot to do...lettering is vinyl die-cuts, to match the smaller name on the hummer , add a few more decals after the last wall is on , building a slammer to keep inside . now to find room to keep it ..............

Great combo Ken. That is a wild set up. Any team would be glad to have that as a transporter.

Looks great but one question.

What's gonna keep that creeper from hitting the floor on the first corner (bump, curb, whatever)?
