Just about anything will look good behind this tractor. The any of the AMT Fruehauf trailers, or the Ertl Great Dane trailers. Maybe even the Moebius Great Dane trailer. The Wilson Livestock trailer will not fit due to the fixed fifth wheel and the belly on the trailer. Also, you might have to widen the hole in the fifth wheel to accept to AMT kingpin.

That´s a very nice snapper. I have this kit myself and I haven´t noticed that the grill looks so real. Is it just black washed?

Thanks!!!,yes the grille was just black washed a couple of times ...I just used cheapie "Americana Acrylic" from Michaels cost $.50 a bottle then I went over it again with a light coat with "The Detailer" black wash...

I think that this truck would look good with a custom painted 'NASCAR' dropdeck 40-footer behind it... I'd paint the trailer to match the truck... That would be a fine looking combo.

You know,I honestly thought of the "NASCAR" trailer also painted the same as the truck and I have an old un-built Revell ASA T-Bird I could do the same to go with it...thats if I could find a decent priced one....

Buy it now, 29.99 with 11.99 shipping.... They are still pretty affordable and this is in the ballpark for what these trailers usually sell for. Hope this helps!

This one's a few more dollars.

There're usually two or three on eBay at a time. These are the same kits as the old moving van trailers, just redecaled... If you don't do eBay, I buy and sell so I could help you out...
