  1. Scratchbuilt cobra neck lowboy

    Thanks everyone Tom- drop me a text if there's anything the future owner wants added lol Glad I could help with your build block, this was a fun build just for something different and hugely gratifying. Hopefully I'll see it in paint eventually. ..

    Thanks !! I'm just waiting on the rest of the tires now then send off to the new owner for paint . I had few days off work so I spent the time fashioning the d rings , wood planking and misc details I noticed . Last night's major step was marrying the deck to the suspension section...total length ends up 25 inches !!! Hope my buddy has enough shelf space lol here's a few wip pics . The front suspension mounts required a different shape, they attach via a yoke or fork around the beam..I just made some strips and sanded the shape into them adding a few Meng bolts for detail. I left everything loose for painting Well...that's it for now ..oh that arm is the lever they flip to unlock the trailer when unhooking guess I captured the look pretty close

    I started working on the rear section, the trunnion boxes located between the wheels . The last trailer I built I struggled keeping the 4 pieces even and level..this go round I glued a section of square tube inside then covered with Plastruct HO diamond plate Finally mocked up the drop air suspension after everything dried Lastly was turning my attention to the deck ramps a quick doodle on 040 sheet covered up the framing and received its tread strips Almost there any feedback welcome !

    Thanks alot !! I originally planned using the kit lowboy for parts..but he wanted a modern trailer for his bill signs hauler..so I contacted jamie and secured enough sets for an appropriate trailer. Thanks for following along

    Somehow I lost a few progress pics..gotta leap ahead to the details inside the goose neck. .mainly the support that drops onto the tractor during unloading ops, and the triangle actuators. Everything was built from rod, tubes , and sheet stock from pics .. a quick mock up pic ...gotta make sure it looks right..lol ! The deck will be covered w basswood strips and leaving the center exposed to show the framing . I dislike hiding all the work under panels. So far I'd had about 2 weeks works tied up into this...working on it about 2 hrs a night after daughter went to bed . Really fun project Thanks for looking
