A simple little project using a left over base toys trailer.
This is what I started with. which is, lets face it, a bit naff
Using the Langley models kingwheel kit you can turn it into something half decent. The kit caters for single and twin wheels so that’s all to need for both axles. In reality you could knock up the tailer bed from bits of plasticard in a leisurely 10 minutes!
The finished trailer after a spot of weathering. The reason for posting such a simple little project is to demonstrate that anyone can have a go at something like this for very little money. There’s no need to attack your latest RTR loco as a first attempt as this can teach a lot with ultimately very little to loose. We have the modification of the plastic bed. Use of white metal components (Have a crack at low melt soldering) adapting kits for your own uses and weathering. Sure its tempting to go for a headline loco if you are new to the hobby but something this simple will also teach a lot of skills. Plus if it all goes horribly wrong you can just throw it away, the lessons learned never follow it into the bin!
