    Wow! If you get rid of the stuff on the trailer sides, and replace it, that'll be awesome!

    yeah I am still working on the finish. the weird thing is the hardcore trucker thing is growing on me. but I do believe I have found some near G1 style stripes and insignia for it.

    Its a 1:32 peterbuilt from Magic Mart, PM me if you are interested in me picking you up one, and I used the original connections with a small square of styrene added to fit over classic prime's square trailer peg.

    hey.. I've seen that over at Transtopia. welcome aboard! :)  I cant' wait to see it finished. I will eventually do it once I get a cleaner plate. you should do otheres a favor and take a good picture of the connector you rigged up.

    I was wondering personally, where'd you get the part you're using for the turet?

    Some reprolabels perhaps *wink*

    I remember some punk on here saying that a customs trailer for Classics Prime would be cool and even cooler with some reprolabels. Who could that be . . . ? *looks around*

    Uh, you?

    ;-)

    I love what you've got going and how it looks.

    What was your source for the trailer? Is it all scratchbuilt, or did you have a donor trailer to work with?

    yeah I am still waiting to hear back from reprolabels on a sticker option for this guy. as far as where he came from he is a 1:32 scale peterbuilt semi trailer. he was solid and I have since began to cut him up. I just used an exacto knife to cut through him. the cammand center base is a scrap G1 prime base with the weapons top removed and the bottom cut way down. the top is a combination of Zoids Blox (the core and canopy) and old Gi-joe bazookas. I will try to get a how to up on the conecter between the trailer and bigbot. Its deceptively simple. thansk for the welcomes to the board guys.

    Duuuuuuude!

    Too awesome. Prime needs a trailer, and that one fits perfectly.
