047a_zps6bdf5c9c.jpg 069a_zpsdeeb9b5d.jpgI'm setting this trailer up for a friend and am posting it to show how I accomplish a nice curbside race trailer....I hope this helps anyone build one on their own...It is of a 53' long version in 1/25 - 1/24 scale....Roughly 26 1/2" long and 6" high and 4" wide....

DSC06066-1.jpgLooks good JT

Look forward to getting it,I'm thinking of doing a mock up of it and using it to show my air line kits off.

 

I will still be using your rig and Duane's rig also to advertize them.

 

I'm thinking this one needs a big black custom painted trailer behind it.

And you can go ahead and get some more of these made up for me AT LEAST 3 the same way when you get the chance and we'll work the detail's out over the phone.

Again thank you very much.

God bless you and yours

Earl

I use .060" sheets, but you can go thinner or thicker, but this thickness seems just right...Go to a plastics supply place and you can pick up a 4' x 8' for about $20...A serious deal....Gonna pick some more up, this week....
