Fruehauf Flatbed Pre-Build Questions. Tips needed

11 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I am going to start working on the fruehauf flatbed soon, and I have a few questions.. First of all, I am sort of new to the tractor trailer building, so my future builds you will all see won't be able to compare to any of yours, but you have to start somewhere. My first question is; is it possible to make the trailer have the axles split? And if so, how could I go about doing that? Next question I have is how could I make an "oversized" load, and what could I make it out of? My goal with this build is to replicate one of the trucks you would see on Ice Road Truckers. I have ordered the Italeri Peterbilt 378 to pull this trailer, but I have not yet received it. Your questions/tips/pointers would be greatly appreciated to help me make this an awesome build.

Thanks!

Kyle

thanks for the article Jim, However do you happen to have all of the article for the 48' sprade axle flat. This appears to be the last steps and i was looking for where to make the cuts like it shows for the drop deck.

thanks

It was totally scanned at one point. I remember reading it on the site, and I thought I had a hard copy someplace. I'll have to go through my files.

I just checked through my files, and apparently I never printed this one off the site. We'll have to contact him & let him know it's missing.
