Hello to everyone... On the hauler section I am building a Totorhome to go with this trailer to pull it from track to track. Everything but the tires and wheel have been scratch built from plastic stock. And without a lot of references this build has been fun to try and make it look as real as possible. Here is what I have done so far, hope you enjoy...[url=[IMG]http://i1362.photobucket.com/albums/r700/john5411/359%20Peterbuilt%20Dirt%20Late%20Model%20Toter%20and%20Trailer/ModelLateModelToterandTrailer040_zps80bd2a4d.jpg[/IMG]]Frame construction... under way out of long plastic strips... I glued 2 together to make an angle for strength[/URL][url=[IMG]http://i1362.photobucket.com/albums/r700/john5411/359%20Peterbuilt%20Dirt%20Late%20Model%20Toter%20and%20Trailer/ModelLateModelToterandTrailer043_zps4d0a464b.jpg[/IMG]]I now built a tongue [/URL][url=[IMG]http://i1362.photobucket.com/albums/r700/john5411/359%20Peterbuilt%20Dirt%20Late%20Model%20Toter%20and%20Trailer/ModelLateModelToterandTrailer042_zpsf1dbee30.jpg[/IMG]]I added front jacks and a center hitch support in the fame..[/URL]
