28Ft. Rib side Trailer

Recommended Posts

Very, very nice job. The interior looks almost exactly like one of the trailers I load and unload several times a week at work. Excellent.

What's goin' on...

Thanks for the compliments fellas. As far as what truck I'll build for this I have no clue. I started building an old Diamond Reo but considering the truck now is nearly longer than this trailer I'll have to build another truck. :lol: Maybe make a day cab GMC Astro? The threshold plate warpage wasn't planned!!! Since the floorboards are strips of basswood I used Walthers GOO to attatch the diamond plate (Plastruct 1:100) but the glue was too hot and it warped it. I tried removing that and starting over but getting that off would've caused some damage so I left it. here's a picture I just took of the AMT Duster inside. This one is 25th scale so I'm sure a 24th scale car can fit too. To hide the warped threshold plate I was thinking about scratchbuilding palletized freight using cling wrap as shrink wrap.

Nice looking trailer and one I would like to add to the back of my Mack DM600, if I ever get it done!

Oh, and "Up the Irons!"
