  1. Hi guys. I've bought this kit to try to build an "all open" custom van, with carpeted interiors, and a custom trailer based on the metal one I have, which is way too heavy: And here's the copy, just with a little more room for the wheels: And here are the fenders, I've glued two sheets of heavy paper, and sanded it. I wanna finish it like raw metal, without painting: With the twin wheels: Current state: I've found the right plastic rod, so I can hook up the ramps like they were supposed to be: Next step, external hinges like these ones, which will be sanded and replaced with working ones: And build a rail to let the door slide out, also because I'm installing the wide fenders kit: If you have any input or link for the sliding door, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm still undecided on what to put on the trailer, a ford car or two bikes:
  2. Preliminary box art for the upcoming 1/25 AMT Peerless "Roadrunner" Logging Trailer reissue, kit #1103: Oddly, the page for the previous 2009 reissue is still viewable, but the only change appears to be the new pale gold background color: http://round2corp.com/product/peerless-logging-trailer/
  3. Preliminary box art for the upcoming 125 AMT Wilson Livestock Trailer reissue, kit number 1106: Is that tractor a tease of something to come, too?
  4. I finally finished my 1965 Chevy Stepside, trailer and 1968 Mustang Drag. I got the trailer from a junk yard I got off ebay. Put some nice rims on the trailer and added the scratch buit tire rack on the front. Thank you for looking Original '68 Mustang Drag thread - Link Original '65 Chevy Stepside thread - Link
  5. Scratch built camper trailer

    Hey all, I just built this little camper from styrene sheets and some plywood and balsa. The sides are grooved siding sheet, and the curved top is .010" styrene over balsa spars. I used the trailer tongue, axle, and jack from the Revell midget racer trailer. Window frames are .080" styrene angle. Clear styrene windows have paper curtains printed from online. Propane bottle is the head from a Lego man. Parts box wheels (VW) and taillights. There's no interior detail (I'm lazy!). I plan to make a campground diorama to display this and two other teardrop models I made. This was a fun build, and I hope you like it! Under construction pic. Balsa spars.
  6. Hey all this is my first post as a new member. This is my first attempt at scratch building and I have not built any models in decades. I got a notion to build models of some of the trucks that I drove back in the 70's and to build models of others that I thought were too cool! I got into the scratch building because I was frustrated by the scarcity of certain kits, particularly the pup trailers. I became inspired by the scratch project of other members so I decided to give it a go. I didn't plan to build the Trailmobiles but I had an AMT US Mail rig to use as an example so I could gain experience before I get into building Pup Trailers from photos. I intend to build a variety of them including bullnose vans and wedge vans to imitate those of Consolidated Freightways and P.I.E.. Anyways, I'll post my progress. I'll start with 5 scratch Trailmobile Dry Vans. I am in the body assembly phase and am as far along as the photos show.
  7. Well,it's the first completion of the new year, nothing major, but it did present it's own little challenges. you wouldn't think it'd be that hard to glue a box together so anyway, here it is.... soon to be paired with this, as always, thanks for reading, tom
  8. Well here I have finely got this project done and its a late 1950's vehicle hauler. The cars,trucks and trailer are based on a real vehicles that I seen a picture of online.
