Simple custom trailer for my '34 Ford roadster

This doesn't even come close to what Duffy showed us with his recent trailer build/ It's a simple two-whee;ed trailer I made for a race set I completed a couple of years ago. Almost entirely scratch built from various shapes of Evergreen and Plastruct plastic, the exceptions being the wheels and tires (standard AMT Firestones and steelies), the fenders (AMT ’25 T rear ‘cycle fenders) and the springs (AMT ’37 Chevy rear suspension). I know zero about trailers so I used the little trailer in the Revell Edelbrock Midget kit as a pattern. Of course this one is much, much, bigger and had to have suspension to take the weight.

Here are a couple of pics of the trailer, the car and trailer together and the race set. I'll post more pics of the race set as part of my posts for the roadster and the '40 Ford sedan delivery.

Thanx for lookin',
B.

Well, HECK yah!! See, I said I overthought the thing and here's the proof. All the crossbraces I put in to keep the weldment from flopping & parallelogramming? You put the bracing in the front segment, and it does the same thing. That's what we need. Or, the tread plates would serve as shear-panels, that'd be sufficient too.

You gonna tell us more about the sag wagon? It's beautiful!
