    I thought that too but the real trailer is a 53ft reefer and if you use a scale 40ft one it just looks tiny. i went on the basis of two primes back to back is about the length of the trailer.... i think.

    That chrome work is simply amazing! Don't get
    Me wrong, kudos on all the LED marker lights too, but that chrome!!! Where does the foil come into play as opposed to the alclad? I've never used foil, but have seen it pop up on more customs lately.

    Cheers, i used the foil to do the criss crossed diamond effect on the back doors of the trailer. Strips diagonally one way then stips the opposite way.

    Wow! The lights really bring it to life. It looks great, but I do have to say that trailer looks really long.

    This looks stunning. Absolutely stunning.

    My question to you: Where did you find the trailer to use for the "framework" or base for this? Store? Toy name? Just curious.

    And I think the trailer is a testament to your attention to detail in that your aspect ratio, while some here think is too long, may just be in scale with Leader Prime. How long is a real '92 Peterbuilt vs. The Leader Toy, then using that same scale to determine a scaled down 53' Trailer.

    I think it looks amazing, in every way.

    LED's look amazing on this. Why didn't you do the headlights? Does it still transform?

    Its non transforming and its still a work in progress so the headlights will come, the trailer is an Italeri 1:24 scale American Cargo Trailer heavily modified.
