Smile My Fontaine Flatbed

Ive always loved the Fontaine Line of Trailers so I figured, what the **** since im waiting on parts to finish my Pete Build I might as well get going on the trailer I will be pulling.... I am going to be as scale and precise as possible including having the Bow in the Bed like real flatbeds do on an empty load. SHe will be done with a mix of styrene, wood, and aluminum. This is what i have so far....
