Ok i think I have my head back into this one! been doing some more work on it and decided to go with the full cab and cut out a pyramid design in it like the aztec warrior, kinda like the pyramids of Giza.....

I like the pyramid cut. Fits your theme and is easily spotted with your theme. I can understand how you want to tie it all together, keep it going man..

A mummy will go along with your theme. Did you get most of your stuff at Hobby Lobby or Michaels??

most all from hobby lobby and some gamer bits from a wargammer store and the latest mummy from amazon. Anywhere I can pick up stuff a good resource too is thrift stores.

Thanks Jake,

Did a mock up of what the trailer may look like. I know it would be very heavy if 1 to 1 and hard to get the car on the top layer but I went from just having the truck and trailer with all the loot to adding the 32 so needed a car trailer then when the car is on the trailer there is no room for all of the loot that I have collected, that is why I added the top layer. Will have to give it more thought I may just go back to my original idea of the trailer of loot and forget the car not sure at this point. any suggestions or ideas at this point would be appreciated.

I had to take a step back and rethink this as a double decker trailer was getting out of hand, just an update where I am now, getting a good start on the interior panels and in side the cab......going to scrap the double decker trailer idea but have two trailers instead, can show it with either trailer.

This will be the second trailer with the sarcophagus and mummy, the idea is to have it in slabs of the sign foam to look like a tomb with the hieroglphics on the sides with a top on it as well. C8311D87-9B17-41B6-AE7C-0B619D59CD82_zps
