This is an ongoing parts box build. Italeria cab, snap kit wheels, scratchbuilt box & bed. Trailer is freuhauf with 4" added to length and bottom skirts. . Graphics are vinyl and hand paint. Had to buy another snap kit to scavenge parts from. Maybe I can finish now and start on the car to go inside! Post more when finished.

Very nice! I'm new here and found this doing some searching on toterhomes. I'm looking to make one of these using the Revell Monigram 1:16th kit so I can use it with my 1:18th models.
Would like to see some of your WIP shots and reference material if possible.
Not sure I can do the graphics as good as yours!

Cheers

Welcome aboard! Not sure if I still have WIP pics, I'll look. Meanwhile ck out showhauler.com or google toterhomes. I need to finish this, but alot of 1:1 stuff going on at the moment.

Only one and it's in the middle of a repaint at the moment, never built the funny car to go with it and never was real satisfied with the striping. Got a 53' hauler going on too. More on both later!

Thanks JT, but the graphics are gone, trailer is now yellow, working on new graphics. Just got bored and started all over. This one is a stacker and measures out 44'. New pics later.
