    I figured I would post this here because it is made all out of paper except the wheels and kingpin.

    This is my 1/24 scale 48 ft drop deck trailer I scratch built to go with my 1/24 Kenworth W900 custom. The top deck is made with aluminum tape stuck to cardstock then cut to size and then scored with the lines for detail. All I really have left on this build is building the 10 utility boxes that go underneath and building the load to go on top of it.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Thank you John, it turned out better than I thought it would.

    As for the engine, you did a remarkable job, it is the perfict size. I am working on it right now, Should have it all built today but then I am going to do all the little detail so it will be another few days tell it is done.
