Very nice!  Hopefully, N scale version will follow.  I know, N-scalers just got a very nice truck. ;)

Jonathan and Peteski
I think there already is a version of this model in N scale.  If you know otherwise or if it has been discontinued let me know.  In the meantime I will check into it as well.  Thanks for the feedback

Joe,
I'm trying to fiqure out who makes this type of a 28' pup trailer and I'm not coming up with anything.  Maybe you're thinking of the short toy-like trailers Atlas includes on their flat cars?

I know we have the Trainworx 28' drop frame UPS-style pup trailer (I own bunch of them).

I would like to model some FedEx trucks and they use short Flush Deck trailers.  They also use the drop-frame ones but the Trainworx ones have too much of a bevel on the front (they are UPS specific).  So, a 28' drop floor pup trailer with less of a bevel in the front would be welcome.

Here is some photos of the trailers I would like to see made:






I know that Walter looks unusual subjects - one of this in N scale would be cats meow!  I can make the decals - I just need something to put them on.  :D

Thank you for listening to your customers Joe!  You guys have been very accommodating to me (starting with the Pfat Boys Diner), then you keep coming out with really killer models!  You make lots of N and Z scale modelers very happy (ok, and H0 modelers too).  :)

As far as the FedEx Custom Critical trucks go, there are several different versions. Here is another (even stranger looking) one:


If Walter wants some more ideas, all he has to do is a Google search images for Fedex custom critical truck.
