1/24 Trailer


Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone knew the measurements or had any tips for building a  1/24 transport trailer? I'm not sure whether I should build it from thin wood or get some sheet metal and use that? Either way I will paint the trailer gloss black.

I´ve built a racecartrailer from scatch some time ago. I took the widest racecar i have and took the masures from it to fít on the Trailer so it´s wide enough to carry any streetcar as well. Best place for the axles will be in the middle of the Trailer.

I recommend to build it from Evergreen or Plastruct material you can get in your Hobby shop, they carry a lot of different sizes and shapes such as T-beams or angles, tubes or rods. For me Wood or metal doesn´t work well for such a Project.

Hope this helps a Little bit.

Thanks, I'll keep this in mind.

My 1:1 car hauler is 82 !/2" between the fenders, 18'  2x12 wood  bed and will haul a full size truck or racecar without a problem. Standard 16' utility trailers are mostly 76" between the fenders, just have to convert to scale
