 About a month ago . ipulled out one of the old AMT lowboy kits. The box actually had two kits in it . So wanting to do something a bit different. I decided to

modify this one a bit.

  I stretched the goose neck about  a half inch . Then cut the rear of the load deck off at the angle . And then added about 3/1/2 inches . The rear was built per kit instructions.

 

 Some photos of the beginning of the build

 

 Be Well

I am interested in how yours turns out. I recommend you do the woodgraining trick.  (You commented on the one I built last year)

     Thanks guys for your comments . Things have slowed on this project. trying to get enough tires the same size .

I still need to make tie down loops . I have painted the plastic wood grained decking. But I may go with real wood ???

Not really trying to do anything spectacular. Just to build a decent looking trailer for some heavy iron.

    Also have many other trailer projects in progress . Just rehabbed an ERTL GD extendable trailer . Just need a couple of bits to call it done .

Also have a stretched gravel trailer in the paint shop .

    WIll be taking some photos when I get some of these projects finished .

 

Be Well
