    read the follow-alongs we have on scratch-built TFs, and read our styrene guide as well. that will help answer most of your questions. Biggest advice I can give you is to measure everything out before hand, maybe even make a paper version first to test your thoughts out. and plan, plan, plan. Get everything worked out before you actually start working on it, and you'll avoid many a headaches or set-backs from oversights. You might also want to read our "tools for customizers" guide since you're new.

    All our guides are in the "tutorials" section of Radicons, listed to the right of the listing the same as all the forums are.

    The japanese MP-02 came with a cardboard trailer just like that. You could use that as a base and start from there. Use styrene and replace the cardboard for plastics. Take your time and the result will be stunning.
