Hi there all. I have been out int he garage again and so have managed to get soem construction time in on these trailers. These picts are mostly of the trailer for Jim (IBJ40), which as you can see from the last pict , is slightly different to Diecastx's trailer.

Peter,

Looking good indeed.

How is the rear door going to open, is it going to fold down and be used like a ramp?

At the risk of sounding self-effacing, Nocky, it is looking GOOD!



As the pics I sent you suggest, the rounded top, and the side door are perfect replicas of my old trailer, and if you can fit an 1/18 scale Anson or Ertl truck inside, then we can easily fit a Carousel 1 Corvette or a GMP Camaro (similar to the two race cars I had while we owned that trailer) into it.

I'm working with someone on another un-named Board to create a receiver-type trailer hitch for it. We hauled the same trailer with a Silverado Dually (the Corvette) and a Silverado Suburban (the Camaro), so same hitch set up (actually same chassis-have I put in too many parentheticals?) should work for either. Plus, I have both a White dually, and a White suburban in the collection (so the set up can work either way).

I'll be moved into my new house in April: This would make a wonderful "House-warming" gift!

XOXO

:lol

Right, no pressure then!!!!
Does that mean you DON'T want me to make a hitch on the trailer? I can leave that part as is or put on on. The one I have on my original trailer is a ball-type connector that is the ball in on the towbar and the socket is on the trailer.

:cheers

Make it as indicated. What I am trying to have built is the receiver bracket to fit on the tow vehicle and the ball unit. I will need the trailer to have the ball-type connector with the socket on the trailer, as indicated.

Thanks!

I can make a tow ball reciever for you if you want. I use and RC plane ball joint and it works well. I put on in for you anyway.
