    hey everyone, just added some new pics of the trailer ! the sides are on all the way around. also put on a custom rear suspention. as you can see in some of the photos the gaps in the right angles when sides come together. that gets covered with angle iron. so that will be hidden later. also the space at bottom of side skins gets a channel put in too! hope you like still a long way to go! but i must say it looks like a hopper bottom and not a tanker or a reefer so im doing something right!!!

    I know I know....... i just felt humbled in that comment and i like to joke around alot. only problem with type is sometimes you can show your emotion in the print !!!

    thanks guys.

    one quesstion i got is at every joint and seem wilson applies ummm almost and appoxy of sorts to seal joints. i was wondering how i would go about getting that affect. I feel it would really hide alot of the lines. well not hide but give it more of a welded line look i thought of just appling glue and smoothing out and painting over. it give it. i seen that in some of the places in hiding area where i tried it !

    logging truck i called 2nd chance
    here is my logging truck. i called secound chances. basiclly my first model i tried but do to a bad can of paint. i had to soke it in pinsole and start all over, and since i went into with a it could be a loss i tried my hand at twotoning paint! im happy with how it turned out. as you can tell i just doubled up the decals to help hide the minor flaws in the paint !

    no its just plastic styrne sheets glued together and any larger gaps got white putty over them. once spot was was just fine but when i apply pressure it just cracks back open so if thats the only problem i have( i'll be putting a bolsa wood in it and to make it only half loaded to look like a full load of corn) and or the tarp will be on it and the better details are looking great on the outside!! so i hate giving up on one flaw but i dont wanna destroy what i've done so far. becouse of it

    i take your aluminum soldered as a complement . but like i said styrne sheets and rustolum metallica alumminum paint. btw im not liking the shinny ness of this paint so im not sure if i wanna go to a light grey, or what. well see what i feel once im ready to do the outer skins !

    wilson hopper bottom
    here is some photos of my wilson hopper trailer. i just started this is the first part of it. the hoppers section long way to go. this is first coat of paint to help get idea where im at and to what sanding and feeling needs done. i've never scrached built anything so im verry happy with what i got so far. it will get a out skin to it so what you see now is to help strenthing the model. one part you'll see the hevey puddy keeps cracking im going to sand it. glue once more then paint im tired of chasing it, and im thinging ouf putting fine cracked corn in it anyhow to make it look loaded. not sure but either way tired of chashing one crack so any pointed would be welcomed. please leave all comments good and bad tell me what you think!

    your close but no. i got a eddie burre model and the bumper does have strip but it has two holes in the center a rectange shape hole. i mean its no big deal but, the 4x4 is what i wanna change. and i did think of getting a dana rear and cutting it to shape( the axles) with the 2 wheel drive cross beams and making it work that way so i'll have to exsplore looking for them broncco kits!
