20ft container trailer with Ford Transcontinental

Recommended Posts

I'm  working  a Ford Transcontinental from KFS. I used a Italeri FH16 kit  for the chassis. The wheels be changed. The main project in this case is the traler not the Transconti.
The trailer is one of the kits that the Dutch model Truck Club (DMTC) had sold  at the on the Road Show, Jabekke/Belgium. It represent a 2 axle  style trailer from the 80's. It is a cnc milled kit where you have to add details like brakes, wheels & tires etc.. The kit includes a simple spring suspension design. I had change this with a trailer suspension kit  together with some York brake drums and trailer axle kit from KFS. The load will be one of the 20ft trailer from Italeri. The wheels & tire combination will be some doubles.

Ah, a blast from the past! I remember seeing these on the German Highways/Autobahns. Didn't the French have a French version of the Transcontinental?

The Transcontiental used the cab of a Berliet, chassis from a Ford Louisville and a Cummins engine

I call "Jupp" finished. Still waiting from CTM taillights. I have to add the trailer airlines and the rear licences plate. Container and trailer are still in progress

Fantastic detailing on your tractor.  The curtains are a nice touch, too.
