The larger Galaxy trailer kits come with a second set of ramps that make into a nice flat trailer with the addition of some fenders and wheels. Here's one I made sitting between the Galaxie trailer and the AMT Display case trailer.

Here is the Brass tube frame for the Dodge "Pumpin' Iron" pickup box;

1-25trailers-5.jpg

Springs are from the Parts box. Don't remember what kit they are from.

Axle tube is brass.

I think rims are from AMT 70 ford Police. Tires are Revell Super soft Firestones in most Vanagon kits,

and the Skip's 57 Chevy Nomad.

And with the box in place;

Here are parts of a Copied AMT Utility trailer from either the 63 Nova Wagon or 61/62 Buick Special Wagon

Simple scratchbuild copy!!

I drew the plans for this flat bed in 1/32 and built it.

Tow hitch on Lindberg Charger is also scratch-built.

The pickup box trailer is similar to the 1/25 build, but from an MPC Chevy Stepside "Trail Patrol" kit that got a

Squad 51 type utility box added.

Tongue 'A' frame is Plastruct 'I' beam

Tires on the Pickup box trailer are from Lindberg 1/32 kits (Like the Charger & Cordoba in the picture)

while the rims are from an IMC slotcar stock car kit.

Tires on the flat bed are MPC 2pc from 77/78 Trans Am Pursuit Patrol,

rims I think are from Monogram Malibu Police

Mike L's "Treasure Trailer" might be just the right starting point for the new Lindberg (Pyro) Boat kits.  Now to get the Century Coronado Boat and one of the Dodge Sprues and do some measuring.

Some years ago I built the AMT Dodge D50 in to a stock looking Mitsubishi L200 (the D50 is a Mitsubishi for those that don't know) with a scratchbuilt trailer behind it.
