Hello fellow LJs, so here my latest completed project. I was about to make a shelf for the Tudor and thought I should do something different. So I came up with the trailer idea. I wanted to try the tip trailer and it works but the Tudor is to low so have to use ramps as well. . The fenders are removable and the floor or the trailer is made with individual boards (left saw marks for more realistic look same as the ramps.) I had to make a hitch for the pick up so I completed some things on it as well, mirrors, wipers and added some walnut to the running boards. As always all comments welcome.

GR8 It just helps to give you an excuse for another project and kicks the WOW factor up a bunch me thinks. lol

I was just thinking that you have a super nice trailer your self but just a tad big for this.

Nice model trailer, when I first looked at the thumb nail picture I thought it was full size, when I looked at a larger picture, the wheels looked like wood, I caught on eventually, nice job.

SM, You certainly build great models and present them well to boot.

Please don’t take this the wrong way (no criticism at all of your d├ęcor and don’t let SWMBO read this part) but at first glance, that top picture reminded me of an unsurfaced loading yard… looks realistic.

The combo pops.

PS. Suggest you cross pollinate all the related projects. Be a shame if other viewers may miss this incestuous setup.

Just highlite some meaningfull text (like “this load” below) then click on the “chain” (link) between the “I” and “img” in the control pane of the comment box and paste the URL the associated LG page (just browse the page and cut and paste the URL).... Do that in each of the posts pointing to the others.
Now if you understand that I can tell the missus it BS when she always says I ramble.

EG. That unsufaced lumber yard was there when I picked up this load.
