What can I say, easy jobs are done first. PITA jobs come second. Guess which one your trailer was...

I wonder how long it takes them to make a real trailer?

So Reg are you that small or do you have a shrink ray that you use on yourself? Or do use it on the trailer when your done building, well no wonder they look so exactly like the 1:1's, Because they were originally 1:1.


Yeah, no I'm not nuts I'm just a member of this forum

It's pretty chilly in the shop some days so there is no need for a "shrink ray".

Haha, it wasn't the worst that's for sure. It was more involved than I would have guessed but it's not so much that it needed to be difficult, I just don't have the right tools for easily bending a 1/4 round. Once the tub was bent up the rest was actually pretty cool. It's my favorite trailer to date based on looks although I'm in no rush to build another like it. Is it there yet? I haven't checked the tracking.

I think this one id done. Unless I'm forgetting something? Suspension and other details are to be installed when it arrives at it's new home.

Thanks Brandon. I'm gonna quickly finish the little sister to this one and then I will be able to focus on yours 100%. I received the suspension and axles for "lil sis" yesterday so I worked on it last night until I had the frame made and mostly assembled. It will be riding on a tri axle Tamiya setup. I will be looking to sell it once completed. One person is possibly interested but I don't know if they are going to take it yet. More updates to come!

I didn't spend much time in the shop today but I did get the suspension mounted on this one. This is my first time using Tamiya suspension on 3 axles. I made up some new brackets to mount the front axle instead of using the Tamiya tandem piece. I hope to finish it this coming week and get it up for sale.
