Hi there im going to start making lowboy trailers for modelers and myself and was wanting to know if anyone would be intrested in one ? They are 98% styrene and the other 2% is balsa wood !! I will be posting pics of a NON detachable front end trailer i built today it takes me about 8 hours to turn out a trailer.... i can build a detachable trailer aswell but it is a little more complicated and a longer prosess .. any questions you have to ask you can pm me or text me at 573 776 0458

Hey Chris, would you consider doing a step-by-step or presenting some plans for these lowboys? Maybe we could use your expertise to scratchbuild our own? I am interested, but, I believe my own labor rate is cheaper than yours. :)

I've got a set of cad drawings I've made myself for a generic lowboy and have built one using parts from the AMT kit. The big issue for me is suspension and wheel, tire combinations. That's why I used the AMT kit with the electric transformers on the box top artwork. But I'm always interested in lowboys of all kinds.

That thing is wicked looking, I am working on a Pete that will need a trailer someday. A detachable front end low boy sounds really cool.
