Model trailer for 25' Lyman Wood Boat

I'll be putting together a 1/10th scale model of a 25' 1963 Lyman wood runabout.
Thought it might be fun to display it on a scaled car trailer.
Question: Any kits, sources or experience on constructing a boat trailer? Finished Boat model will be approximately 30" in length.

Thanks for any thoughts and/or sources,
Bill

Correct, Legend boats. Purchased through MACK. Should be receiving delivery early next week. My father-in-law actually owned this Lyman back in the day. (see attachment) Was surprised to find it available in model form. Hopefully get it built in time for his birthday! Have built a couple Dumas Chris Crafts, but it's been a few years. This site is unbelievable, intend on spending some time here. Need to update myself on all of the latest and greatest, adhesives, finishes, etc.
