It is a nice kit ,only wish they would have maid an optional tridem axle and side skirts.

 

Side skirts are super easy to scratch build, I'm working on a set for my trailer. I'm using .030" styrene, 11" long by about 2.25" tall..they mount to the bottom of the chassis with angle brackets and fiberglass bracing

Been a slow process so far, but got a bit done to the trailer. Added some missing details to the reefer unit (control panel, handle for the front doors, was missing a panel line). The only minor gripes I have with this kit other than the reefer details are that the dolly crank handle extends straight out from the gear box, and the air tank mounts to the trailer floor, not the slider frame as it should.
