  1. My Tamiya big-rig history is long and convoluted and full of twists and turns, but this pole trailer is easier to explain. It came to me a couple of years back when I had nearly finished building my Globe Liner as an "every man" rig (something I could take to truck meets and hand out to friends and new members for try-outs) and I needed a trailer for it. A friend of mine had just scored an epic deal full of NIB kits, and one of them was a Tamiya pole trailer. It wasn't really what I was looking for - I would have preferred a flatbed - but it was cheap and available for cash, and I could take it home that day (which made it easier to sneak into the house with the rest of my rig boxes). It was only when I came to build the trailer that I realised it wasn't quite what I wanted. My plan was to use an MFU-01 and remote trailer leg kit with the Globe Liner, but the pole trailer is an unusual double-articulated design and won't self-support when detached from the rig. That meant it always had to be transported attached to the rig and can't be used with remote trailer legs. Fast-forward a couple of years and my plans for my rigs have changed drastically. The Globe Liner is now my chief favourite rig and is fitted with a Beier sound module. I also have an IR trailer light kit for the pole trailer, and plans to make a remote leg kit that is somewhat tidier than Tamiya's crazily over-engineered solution. However to make it work the pole trailer needs to be converted to a rigid chassis and be fitted with some form of leg. First things first - here's the back-end of the trailer with the rotating pole carrier and the telescopic attaching bar removed: And here's the rear with the deck and light carriers removed: As you can see, beneath the deck the chassis is just some aluminium L section. In this case, readily-available 20x30mm L section. An order on ebay and a week for delivery and work could commence
