How have you found the fit of the trailer walls? So far, mine has been a right pain in the rear to line up right. I assembled them to the roof, first.
 
RYAN.


The walls i fit dry befor paint and cut a bit off some parts so theyllfit better. But after paint it will be a different story. At least its a lot better than amt trailer i did lol.


 
Side skirts are super easy to scratch build, I'm working on a set for my trailer. I'm using .030" styrene, 11" long by about 2.25" tall..they mount to the bottom of the chassis with angle brackets and fiberglass bracing

I know,  all the excitement for it, all the people saying they were going to by a case of it, so far, not many have been built on here

 

Don't worry, it'll pick up! Our people will see it built here and get a taste for it. I have one, I haven't gotten to it yet. It's got a lot of potential, I've got at least 3 versions planned. A stock white dry van with 2 hole wheels, a stock reefer van with the kit wheels and a custom lowered one with spread axles. And probably another with 3 axles. I just don't have the area to store a lot more boxes!

Taking oportunity of this topic, may I ask you guys if could I use this kit in order to replicate the trailler of the truck Optimus Prime from Transformers movie?

 

 

 

in my opinion i would say yes with little modifications. Maybe some other people would say no. But its basically the same platform. A 53 foot reefer same as this trailer imo

 

I would agree, the reefer unit is correct for Optimus Prime, and from the different views I seen in the movie, I believe they did actually use a Great Dane for that trailer.

Well I 'm not overly impressed with the fit of this trailer for a new kit ! All the pins don't line up the roof and sides do not line up and the front
Panel is so tight fitting ,I had to cut off all the line up pins . But I must say this is one long trailer.

Make sure you glue the sides to the roof first and then the ends and then the floor.

great ideas for trailers, cool to see so many people with all different ideas, then some the same with so many different outcomes!

 

Started working on one it will have side skirts and be 3 axle with working slide suspension.

 

will be real cool to see the sliding suspension!

i did some dry fitting on my walls and roof, everything lines up perfectly, maybe you did something wrong? maybe theres something wrong with you kit?. i did notice though, that the front panel is a bugger and super tight to go in, i did it third so then i had a wall left and works easy that way just a little tight, roof i will try soon, then i have to finish painting everything.

I think I've seen Terra Nova trucks before on the Trans-Canada... Nice job! The Great Dane looks pretty good behind the T600.
