THanks

Are you looking for a scale trailer like this one I found at xtremercboats.com, or a practical way of wrestling your monster down to the pond?

I scratchbuilt this trailer using brass stock and 1/10 scale R/C car tires and rims. The trailer is silver soldered together. I painted the trailer with some zinc cold galvanizing spray coating.

RG,

Yup, something like that. For displaying as well as launching it.

Bob,
Great Looking trailer. Can you post more pics of your trailer? Might get motivated to built one instead of buying one. Thanks

Triton,
Here are some more pictures. The trailer is 32 inches long and 9 inches wide.

Some more pictures. I built the trailer by eye, I had no plans. I based it on other trailers I'd seen at boat shows, on the web, and in catalogs and magazines.

Bob,

Thanks for posting the additional pics. Your details are super. The nails for nailing the padding, suspension, the winch, stop post etc.. I will attempt to built one, but would not be as refine as yours.

Will post when I get started.
