Hi Everyone

The trailer is finished!smiley. Firstly the hand brake and wheel arch brackets had to be added fully rivetedlaugh. So this

became this

The top boxes were blinged up and the trailer catches added to the rear

Also a PE foot plate was added

I was inspired by Scottie's "stuck in the mud" last year so here is my tarpaulin with eyeletsface 20

Good that the handbreak is back to being a handbrake!

All those iddy fiddly parts It's amazing they come to form something.

Did the kit come with a handbrake, and if so was it a thick blob?

Hi Steve, nice etch work again, good looking trailer. I like the tarp idea as well, love how it sits on top. Only small remark I have if I may is that the tarp is rather on the thick side. Maybe you can thin down the edges a bit?

Keep it up chap!

Cheers

Beautiful work Steve, and that tarpaulin is the icing on the cake.

A`noon Steve,

Just had a right royal read up on your progress here,(you are privileged you know,as i don`t get to look in much of lateface 20wink 2),gotta say mate,what a cracking job you`re doingthumbs up!!

The Flak itself is awesome,and the detailing lengths you`ve gone to on the trailer are a tribute to your thoroughness in buildssmile d,(I always think that these vital bits of kit are often overlooked by many modellers,and just chucked togetherdisgust),it ALL adds to make for a great Dio,speaking of which,I can`t wait to see all the elements togethersmile p,

Superb stuff Buddy,

Cheers,

Andy

Hey Steve,

Top drawer stuff here my friend. I was about to mention the thickness, but Wouter beat me to it. That's why I bought some Milliput to give it a try. I'll probably muck it up though. What do you use for the eyelets? Etch? This is going to be sweet when it's finished.....

Prost

Allen

John - Cheers mateyes. I tried the link but it came up as Big and Bouncy from Bognorthinkingface 20

Hooch -Great to have you along for the ride. I'm glad you are enjoying the build. Tamiya did not provide a handbrake. If they had then yes it probably would have been a big lump of plasticlaugh

Wouter/ Allen - Too late I am afraid guys. Its rock hard now. The middle was starting to split when I was rolling it out so I assumed all was well. On reflection I should have then rolled out the edges also. This is my first attempt at this so now I will be able to do a better job next time round. This is what I luv about this site - you guys helping me improve my skills and bring me to where I am now modelling wise. Many thanks. The eyelets were slices of hollow styrene rod.

Peter - Quite literally. It reminded me of when I used to cover cakes in marzipanlaugh

Mr Smith - I am indeed very honoured with your input. If I had known such Royalty was in the area I would have put out the red carpet and painted the lawn greenface 20. I'm glad you like the build and thanks for the support. PM sent

No moggelling today as I am completely knackered from digging this lot out of my back gardenfist

Have a great weekend everyone
