    used a racing champions nascar trailer form the early 90's, kitbashed the working wheels from another armourhide so they would match the cab :)  came out nice, but I want to see if I can do anything with the sides of the trailer, it looks kinda boring just all grey

    Cool, perfect size. Are you going to paint it or add any detailing to it?

    it is painted, it was bright yellow :p 

    yeah I wanna do something with the sides, but not sure what yet, probably a big sticker with "cybertron racing" on it with some cool designs, cuz I F*ed up the other side of the trailer trying to enscribe a door :p  that's why you don't get to see the other side :p  but shh.. don't tell anyone ;)

    I'd look at pictures of nascar trailers, and come up with something that emulates them but with the TF logo.. nice job.

    That's a great idea! Perfect size, and nice integration with the minicons too.

    Awesome! I love the idea of matching the wheels! I did the same thing with almost the same trailer, but those wheels just make it 10x better.

    DAMN, that's freakin tight as hell.

    Back on topic, Mike that trailer came out sweet, the Armorhide wheels make it a perfect match. Slap some color and some stripes on it or something and you're money.

    Awesome job Mike :thumb 
    Can't wait to see what designs you come up with for the paint.
    I'd go for blue or something that goes well with the cab.

    It's too bad nickkelsch doesn't still have his comics on his site. He had a really good one about Huffer stealing Prime and Magnus's trailer.
