Take a TA01/02 lock the Diffs and you got a nice scale trailer

Wish I could find forgotten things like these Looks like a tidy body except for the hole on the bed.

yes its not too bad no cracks or splits just the hole in the bed, but i think that can be easily covered with a new bed floor!

Yeah put it on a hummer chassis, the wheelbase is perfect for these, i got one i am doing, and was going to use my cc01 chassis, but that meant messing with it, but the hummer chassis fitted perfectly, i also got rid of the silly engine scoop, fillit with milliput or car body filler and remeber to keep/follow the line of the bonnet/hood or it will always show as a flat spot, the chrome work cleans up well with a little white spirit on a soft rag, dont use thinners or you will just have a melted mess on your hands !lol cheers, CC
