Scale I Build

  1. Well it is finally done. Started in Sept '19 finished Apr '20. Started with a vision and it turned out better than I had hoped. Comments welcome.
  2. Here are my in-progress pics for the Lowboy trailer I am going to mate with one of the Freightliner cabovers I am building. I wanted to display 3 cars on it so changes had to be made. The upper deck and frame were lengthened. The axles also got decked over. I swapped rims with my doubles trailer as I wanted chrome ones to match the Freightliner. The wood deck came out pretty nice due to the effort of painting dark brown then tan and gently sanding until the woodgrain came through. The paint is Duplicolor automotive paint. I got the reflective tape from an ebay vendor. I had trouble with the center axle holding the tires off the ground so I built a jig to hold them in alignment when assembled. It turned out pretty nice.
  3. I think I haven't posted anything on this one, anyway, I didn't find any, so here goes. KJ made a kit for a lowboy some time ago, so when I got my copy, I started building it almost right away. It has a 3D printed framerails, mostly cut "Evergreen" styrene parts, a good quantity of resin molded parts and balsa wooden planks for the side floors. I made myself a Lego gage to make the trailer straight and proceeded with the build. It was fairly straightforward and easy to put together. I wanted more suspension detail so I swapped it for an Auslowe suspension and brake kit, added wiring and plumbing and scratchbult hydraulic cylinders for the detachable gooseneck. I'm almost finished with it, it needs a couple safety beacons in the back and a license plate. Here is what it looks like now: You've seen this LTL before, I'm using it for fitting and demo: from the rear Nice 2 resin hole rims and rubber tires included in the kit Showing some of the rear brake system and wooden floor Those nice wheels again with the scratch built big "D" panel Functional cylinders Unhooking gooseneck Unhooked Cylinders retracted Ready to load that dozer, almost... like I said, almost done! Needs it's own tractor and Dozer now.
