I didn't even notice the 5th wheel until someone pointed it out, I know better, just a little spacey lately. I promise it will be turned around before gluing it on
Oh and I'm stealing your blanket idea

I had her mocked up for a club meeting a couple weeks ago, so I figured I'd get a couple pics. Decals are just paper and two sided tape for mockup, I still need to decide which graphics I want for the trailer so I can have them printed.
With any luck I'll get some more pics up before it's finished

I have to say I like the look of this idea too, Rob. Personally, I like the way the signage is one the trailer just the way it is too, it looks like the way a sign would have been bolted onto the sides instead of painted on the trailer itself.

Hey thanks for that info i see now how it lines up with the peep mirror . Most of the coe's here in australia have little mirrors on the door near the peep hole , some even have mirrors above the door to look down beside them on both conv and coes .
The reason for the gap in the dash was so the driver could look down through the little window in the passenger door and see if there were any cars next to him so he could change lanes. Some trucks also had mirrors on the small windows.

I tried to get the silvery gray color I seem to remember seeing on 1:1 trailers in the past, it's close enough for me. Once I get the roof painted I can glue the box together then grease n grime this thing too.
Thanks for lookin'

take the time to fit and modify the windshield wipers, makes a huge difference in how the finished build will look.
Yeah, looking at those things on the sprue kinda scared me....not too keen on the horns either. Thanks
