G’day Heres the trailer I made to go with my WS truck
I did not use a plan , just made it up as I went
I did try to make expandable in width and length but it was not sturdy enough for me so it became a standard fixed version.
now I need a model of construction equiptment to load on it ; a T&J loader plan is on order

Garry, that is absolutely awesome. I can imagine a D11N or a big Excavator on the back.
Mind Blowing mate.
Love the lights.

Thank you for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great job again and very illuminating.

Love the Aussie touch of the wheels on top of the hitch for that down-under feel…:-)

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

It might be something on wheels , making those tracks might be a issue

Snapper the tracks aren’t that bad to make just a ton a work, both Dutchy and I have some how 2’s on making them, check them out, and it seem like there’s others too..
They’re something to be proud of when done but would really have to think about it to do any more of them. lol

I really like your work, Snapper. I don’t recall ever seeing a fully lit wooden vehicle model before. That looks great.
