Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Alrighty then, After the success (?) of my first tractor build (Autocar A64B), I wanted to add a trailer. I was all set to build the logging trailer, then came across the MPC gravel hauler. Think I picked the correct one for my first attempt. Build oob, except for changing the plastic wood top boards for real wood. Didn't have any problems with this kit (vague instructions, hard to read part numbers on the trees). I placed a piece of styrofoam in the dump body, then added aquarium gravel over it to try to keep the weight down. It's still pretty heavy. I put the jack stands in the upper position; even if they were down, it wouldn't support the weight. When attached to the tractor, there's no problem. Paint is all rattle can, and weathering is a mix of dry brushing/pastel chalks/washes. I'm pretty happy the way it turned out. The paint is still drying on this one. Next I might try a cabover tractor kit. As usual, all comments/criticism/threats are welcome, and encouraged.
