Hi all,

I thought I would have another go at making a Car Transport trailer...

This time I made a proper template...: -



Outer Frame...: -



Frame with cross members...: -



With Axles...: -



I tried to do the suspension type of axle on this one, hope you know the type I mean...: -





Both axles & mudguard fitted...: -



The black parts of the mudguards are from a small toy truck and have groves on the top of them, so instead of rubbing them flat I added some strips of styrene...: -







I made the bed from lolly sticks...: -



That's it, the finished trailer will be in the finished section...

Please comment with hints and tips...

Many thanks for looking...

Andy...

Many thanks chaps...

The main thing I learn't from the first one was to make a template, it made it so much easier...
