    Where did you get the vinyl from?

    Looking good. What, or how are you going to make the compartment doors work?

    Looking good. I am really interested in how you are going to do the doors. Where I am stuck with mine at the moment..

    Thanks, this is the only thing I have ever done (in plastic), so that means alot.. Thank you guys for all the comments. Interior is getting primed as we speak. I reached a point where I needed to get some paint on it before enclosing it in. I figured out what to do for some windows (in office area), and will also work for the lower interior doors as well. I will post some pics, when I get a little further ahead in that area. As for the elevator, I have been tring to come up with a simple design, and have a couple of idea's to try out.. Thanks for looking..

    Most of the interior is done, minus some overhead cabinets in the crew area. Not to sure what iI will use to make the cushions as of yet, so the benches might seam a tad low at the moment. I also picked up some stuff for glass, I will see how it works out before cutting holes in the sides of the trailer. Any feedback welcome, thanks for looking.
    1st pic, shows a couple of die-cast cars on there. Holds up to the weight fairly well..

    2nd pic, show the stair up into cre/office space..

    3rd pic, shows the area from the other side. A table will go between the benches as well..

    Ok, got a bit of work done. Most of the lower work area is done, at least for this purpose anyway. Please, any comments or criticism welcom, because I really got no idea what I am doing, but I am having a bit of fun with it...

    First pic shows the right inside wall..


    Second, the left side..


    Third, is the veiw down the center from the front..


    And last, veiw from the rear, with the car deck on..

    Sure, thank you.

    See if these pictures show up. First is just some of the pieces cut out, don't mind all the markings.. Second is the lower lvl inside walls. I think its coming along. I got to head to the hobby store to pic up some stuff this weekend to continue with the lower section, so I might start tackling another area..

    Thanks, it was a couple of your Race Hauler threads that got me thinking iI just might be able to do that. Though iI have built quite a few models in my day, I have never scratch build anything, so it will be interesting. As for tires, I am going full size, have a couple of sets lying around. Thanks for the tip on the glass and RC shops, would not have thought of that.

    @martinfan5 that is what I would like to get to. Might be a bit too much for a first project though. How did you do you hinges in the back of the trailer?

    Featherlite Race Hauler (Updated June 16/13)
    Hey, been around watching your builds for awhile, and decided to try out some scratch building of my own. I am going to attempt a Race Car Hauler, but do not want to go full on curbside, but it will not have a super detailed interior either. A couple of questions if you guys do not mind. 1: I am doing this in 1/24 scale, what is the best way to do doors? (meaning hinges) 2: I am using .60 thickness material, is there something I can use for windows? Thanks in advance. At this moment just have 60% of the pieces cut out, so not much to show at the moment, but will get some pics up when it starts coming together. As for what its going to sit behind, I have three Volvos I did not know what to do with, so I will more then likely use one of those.

    Thanks..

    Thanks for the info guys. Lets say all goes well and I make a hood that will work. Is it hard to make a master to cast others? Are there people willing to do that part of it? Sorry for all the questions, just digging for info..
