I think there's a 24th scale car carrier trailer made by a Japanese model maker. If not you may have to scratch build one or just get some 25th scale car kits if you can get a 25 scale car transport trailer.

Darcy, Revell of Germany makes a nice 80's era Car hauler trailer. AMT used to make a 50's era trailer, but that rascal has been OOP for MANY years. You best bet is E model cars, or the 'Bay.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :lol:

Yes I can get a 1/25 car trailer one but cannot find any companys who build a 1/24 scale one and would a 1/25 scale trailer look alright on a 1/24 scale semi. do you know which company might make them if you think some do? or where i would get the tires and rims for a 1/24 scale to build it as i do have lots in my cars and trucks I have over 115 kits just no semi or haulers lol

Darcy, there's only a 64th of an inch or so difference between the scales. Yes, a 25thscale trailer will look OK behind a 24th scale tractor.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :lol:

I have built the revell of Germany t900 and it is a pretty great kit. I am building the revell us kw aerodyne right now and it's pretty cool too since it's so cheap you can be creative.

Darcy, here's a few pics that might help answer most of your questions. The first one is the Revell of Germany trailer Chucky posted the pic of, loaded with a mix of 1/24 and 1/25 scale kits and diecasts, and being pulled by the Revell US Peterbilt 359.

As for if a 1/25 scale trailer looks ok on a 1/24 scale tractor, like George said, there is not much difference at all. This is an Italeri 1/24 scale tractor and AMT 1/25 scale trailer together.

Darcy, I believe the Kenworth T900 you're talking about is actually a Revell of Germany and is a 1:25 scale model. I might be mistaking but... I don't recall Italeri producing a Kenworth...yet.
So anyway as modeltruckmafia has shown his 1:24 scale Freightliner fits pretty nicely with that Revell car transport. That trailer is a very nice kit by the way, I built one some years back. I had cars in 1:25 and 1:24 th scale on it and looked pretty good.

If you find one, jump on it, it's the best one yet, honestly.

That Revell Kenworth "T900" (Actually just a W900, "A" model with Australian parts added) is 1/25, not 1/24. The Revell car hauler trailer is 1/25 as well and would work just fine behind the Kenworth.
