This is a build that I've been planning for many years after I found pictures of this rig. The story behind the rig is that Chrysler sponsored the Spurrlow singing group in the late 60's. They went around the country preforming at schools. I'm starting with an resin Dodge LS 1000 cab from AITM, AMT White-Frightliner SD and Bill Elliott stock car transporter. The trailer still has some hurdles for me I would like to change out the the wheels to the smaller size and I'm not sure how I'm going to paint or decal the trailer to match. I'm open for any ideas anyone may have. 

So far I've started on the frame.

Hey Dan, I mastered those exact same wheels on that trailer and Jamie Rahmoeller casts them. You can contact him thru his website www.moluminum.com

Ben thanks and I have already received them from Jamie. They are perfect ? great work. I've checked back on the site and they are not listed any more? He needs to check it out as I know there are some guys looking for some.

I made it back home after 2 weeks away from building and had to get some time building before I go to the Modelmeana show today. So checking out the trailer today I decided that the wheel block out needed to be made smaller so I've cut them down. 

Mock up with the smaller block out.
