i have no idea where to get one like this, it looked like it had some age to it
This is awesome, I wish I had 3 or 4 of these! Beautiful job. Any idea where I could get one?
Great Job. it resembles the 1:1 car trailer I drag behind my F250 SuperDuty.

no shots of the underside yet, i will work on getting some though, and i will try to explain how i made the jack with pictures when i get a chance
Great job! Any shots of the underside? Also, how was the Jack accomplished? Curious minds and all.

That is the race car trailer from Revell they did sometime ago.
I am working on one right now and I love the wooden floor on yours. I hope you don't mind if I steal your idea and do the same with the flooring on mine. I am keeping the front portion of the trailer as mine will carry a race car.

1. cut a piece of styrene tube about 3/8" long
2. cut a piece of styrene sheet the same diameter as the tube, glue it on one end (i use superglue gel)
3. file the piece smooth
4. the black piece i used was a piece of sprue, insert it into the tube then drill a hole in the center
5. i used a paper clip, bend it to simulate the shape of a trailer jack handle (i used a surgical staple removal tool to bend the paperclip, it's much easier)
6. use superglue gel to glue the paperclip to the black piece (or whatever color you use). don't glue it to the tube if you want it to slide up and down
7. cut a square piece from styrene sheet to use as the foot for the jack
8. paint, test and install, enjoy!
note: the black piece can be cut to any length, so can the tube depending on however long you want your jack, the only downfall is the "handle" will look unproportioned to the rest of the piece
