I think I'm finally finished with my 70's style Great Dane Reefer. I started with an AMT Great Dane dry van, added some 2 hole steel wheels, scratch built carrier reefer unit and fuel tank, then took a stab at weathering. Here is the end result. I hope to get some shots outside in the daylight eventually.

Obviously a single exhaust stacked truck has towed that trailer for the bulk of its` life. Very nice job!!

Thanks guys, I have started working on a white freightliner COE to pull it. I am updating it to an early 80's model right after freightliner branched off from white. I am also working on a late 80's freightliner FLA with square headlights and different grille.

KJ This trailer came out great and the weathering really brings it to life.  It will great with 49 pulling it.  Please bring it to Fulton.

Nice weathering, just one nit pick,...the tires need some sanding of the tread. Great work though, just needs a tractor hooked up now.
