1/25th 1/24th Scale Large Teardrop Trailer

Post  Dakota_in_the_sky on Tue Dec 29, 2009 11:51 pm

This is a styrene flat sheet model kit. It's like scratchbuilding, but the parts are already cut out. It's a great project for someone who wants to learn to scratchbuild, but has never tried. You need to supply the fenders, wheels, axle, glass, and interior if you want.

The price is $4.99 plus $7 shipping in the U.S.
It's available on ebay as well.

The first step is to peel off the protective paper from both sides

When the two parts have an equal space all the way around, glue the two together with liquid cement.

The front of the roof piece is glued in place. If you want to put in an interior, now is the time.
