Hi all,

I have thinking of making a car transport trailer for sometime and finally took the plunge...

This is what I came up with...





The mesh is the one you use with body filler on real cars...



The axles are made from round balsa wood with a plastic rod pushed through...



Axle mounts...



The black parts of the mud guards are from a cheap toy artic trailer...



The lights are the rear lights off the trailer...



Making the ramps holder...





Thank you for looking, any and all hints & tips greatly received...

I will post the finished pictures in the finished section...

Andy...

Scratchbuilding can be a challenge and you've come up with a new idea on the mesh. All I'd change would be trying for some sort of suspension, axle combo that looks a little more real. Still, if the trailer is to show off other vehicles, then it's great the way it is. Not everything needs to be perfect. The ramp storage idea is a good one too, and something I would have overlooked. Thanx and for good clear fotos and descriptions. We can all learn new things!
