Post your pictures of race car trailers and haulers
Posted by stewart on Thursday, December 03, 2009 3:30 PM
I want to build a race car trailer or hauler of some kind but I need some ideas.

Hemi: (HEM -e) adj. Mopar in type, V8, native to the US, carnivorous, eats primarily Mustangs, Camaros, and Corvettes. Also enjoys smoking a good import now and then to relax.

Someone once told me that there are engines other than the Hemi, but that is just crazy talk! Photobucket Album: http://s969.photobucket.com/home/Hemifan22/index

Stewart, here's one of my WIP trucks. The cab if the AMT Snapfast 90s Dodge dually with the Model King Racer's Wedge.

As you can see, I need to modify the wedge so it fits the dually better. The plans I have for it is to widen the entire bed so the rear duals are under the body and also fill the wheel openings more to the shape of the rear wheels. The frame is one I got from a friend that another member of our former model club had added a section to (note the four catalytic converters) for a project he gave up on.

1965 El Camino is what is on the back of that trailer a 1966 has more of a rounded body.

I do it for the love of the cars.Captain

 Stangfreak, I have not know where you got that van.  I have one of those and want to make a model of it.  It looks like diecast?

This was built using the Revell 1/32 Mack pumper firetruck.  Ok having trouble posting pictures.  Using the "mountain with dot icon" only posts a square box.

AMT 59 El Camino and Revell Midget Racer

Here are a couple I have built, nothing too spectacular:

 

Trailer from Revell Midget like above, but modified by adding a floor section and some other tweaks:

 

This one was a bit more involved. Started out as the trailer in the original Mickey Thompson Assault I, but was hopelessly warped front to back, left to right and with a twist of the entire thing thrown in. Plus it was too narrow and floor section was inadequate for the purpose I had in mind. After straightening out all that, I flipped the front section upside down to allow the hitch to better fit the tow car and did a bunch of other stuff too.

 

I am looking forward to the new Hasagawa (?) trailer that is coming out and in the meantime I picked up a semi gluebomb single axle trailer on ebay for a future project. I also love those little trailers in the Midgets and hope to do something with another couple of them that I have in the stash.

Here's the only one I've done so far. Very basic scratch built trailer, but in keeping with the ensemble, I think.

ideas for trailers is only limited to how big you wanna go, if you just want a sat nite trailer set up you can find the clear case display trailer and leave the sides off or you could use a old bass boat trailer to make a hauler. If you wanna go limited budget racer you could go with different galaxy ltd trailers they come in 3 sizes and if you wanna go big budget you could get you a amt nascar or indy transporter and build to your liking as they come with nice cabinets and all .as for trucks you could get you some dually promo trucks to pull the galaxy 5th trailers and for the big league racesr you could get you the stepps wrecker and use a cutdown box trailer to make the motorhome type truck to pull the nascar hauler the ideas are there but the time to build is limited

We'll this isn't a race car on a trailer, but it's all I have for right now. I built the pickup truck with matching boat & trailer back in the early 80's as a pair and this was my very first BMF job also. The paint was done with "rattle cans" and I was pleased with it. Some parts were used from other kits as well as my parts box.

Here is my scratchbuilt trailer with  "Li'l Nasty" Willys pickup gasser pulled by a '66 El Camino.

 

This is the 1/32 Revell Mack firetruck with a 1/32 Mustang short tracker.

I'm really digging that 1/32 scale set up. The combination looks great and I love the Mustang short tracker.

I just bought a pretty long,1/24th scale,enclosed drag car trailer.I'm not sure of the exact measurements of the trailer.Im wondering if I should build it as a diorama with an awning,using a 66 Nova drag car that I built.I guess I'll have to see how the trailer comes out.
