Posted Image I was looking through Hot Rod and Customs Chronicle hard cover book and came across this one picture of a Tear Drop Trailer. So I got my sheet plastic out and started to cut it out free hand. The rest just kinda followed along, it took me about 8 hours total thats painting and everything. Thanks for looking, it was fun.

I love these little teardrop trailers, great work building it from scratch, I think it would have too me longer than 8 hours just to figure out how I was going to do it, well done !!

Very nice model! I love teardrops. I built a couple models, and a real one. I can't believe you built this one in 8 hours! Great work!
