Those are outrageous Mark, they would look awesome painted with Alclad aluminum, so I have 3 questions :

1. When kit is available ?
2, Order from whom ?
3. cuantos dolares ?

So this was last weekend.  Note the absence of wheels and body endcaps.  Well those are almost done too, so I hope to have this first batch available this weekend!

It has been a while since I started my project, so here are 2 images of one of my trailers. Disregard the red tractor as it is just a prop for the picture.





Oooops, I have a thread in the N/Z section. Double post coming.

Great work Carl!

Don't forget to dab the tiniest touch or red on the upper break lights on the top step of the ladder!  :)

Mark,

If you printed them, I may have to try.  :o

How about some snow chains on a rack. I have re-painted the sleeper cause my masking let me down, yea sure.....................


One question for you Mark. Was there a reason for not putting the 3rd dome lid on the front compartment?

Thanks for looking and the input,
Carl

PS: here is another image with the cab and sleeper being test fit.................

Oh, that ball of chains is beautiful!  I might have to steal that idea for a detail part.  :)


Re: the front hatch.  I must admit, I didn't realize that was a variant.  And quite surprised(embarrased) now that I look into it to find the front hatch included more often than not!

But it was not omitted by mistake:

I could offer an extra hatch with the kit, if folks would like the option to model it that way.

I was wondering the same thing! But I figured there was a reason that hatch was left out. I think including it as a separate part is a good idea Mark.

Update on my dry bulk trailer build. It also shows my tractor. In these images the cab and sleeper are not attached permanently yet. I am making side mirrors and have made exhaust stacks with mufflers to add. I also made spotlights for the front of cab as well as for the top rear of sleeper. I need to re-chrome the filters, then I think it will be completed.......





Here is my next project, already on hand. I think I shall try to get my hands on one of Mark's new tractors.............................



Thanks for looking,
