I cannot even imagine how much that would cost. Where did you get the pics?

A little help:

Check out my Google Sketchup RD up in the Artwok section. As accurate as I couold get from pics and in sketchup to scale. Also has the trailmobile Tanker. So does anyone produce the tanker? Trailmobile 5800 gal 1960 model?

Not too bad, all things considered. And, yes, it does beat the eBay price for the Ertl kit. It looks like a great kit.

Yup, 60" is the right one.

The truck looks right. If you didn't know better you'd never know they used diffrent trucks. 2 were used for the main shots. One was a glider kit that they used for close ups in the cab. One was used to go off the bridge.

I have this 3D trailer I made for a truck game, if we could just find someone to master it we'd be in good shape.

I could provide the plans for it, but think it might be beyond my scratch buildin skills,LOL.

Hey for anyone wanting to scratch that sleeper I have 60" to scale on the outside I did on google sketchup. It has correctly radiused corners and cutout for the stack. Doors are close but may need to be checked dimension wise.

If you need good reference material this is the site to see, they got sleeper measurements, tanker pictures.............http://www.stlouisdumptrucks.com/index.html
I've just bought the Testors Big Rigs Tanker trailer & will try to convert that, seems to be the closest of all the tanker kits out there. Dave from AITM did inform me that he might do a tanker sometime in the future.

What I am finding is the general design of these tankers are oval but not oval/trapezoidal like the 60 trailmobile.

Guess wot guys even though U haven't said anything about STS they have informed me that they no longer carry the RL700 Mack hood, they said molds only last so long so I guess they R out of the equation BUT hey that "Rubber Duck RL700 Mack looks great wots it cost.

At $160aust I'll have to do a bit of hard saving to buy this one, yes why is it that when U go on to the Sourkraut truck site most things R out of stock, is it that he is so busy that he can't keep up or is it that this is just a hobby business for him not that I'm complaining it's just impossible to find anything on the site that's not out of stock.
