You’ll get the sensible one again tonight but for now you just have to put up with me.
I have been looking at my collection of 1/24 scale trucking gear and it’s seriously skewed. All my model making pals have plenty of tractor units and few trailers. It seems I like trailers.
Oh I do have models of tractor units too. In fact the first one I made is this one and it still exists –
However I do have a habit of buying tractor unit kits and then doing things like this to them…
so they are not much use at pulling trailers any more. I have now decided that some of the trailers will go up for sale. They’ll go on eBay but if there are any modellers out there who want an easy-add trailer, here’s first option.
CynaraeStMary likes this one because it has boobs. If you meet us and you have boobs, understand that I’m holding your gaze so she can look at your boobs. Then she’ll hold your gaze 😉
It’s called ‘Queen of the Wolves’ and is a curtainside on a dropside base but in one piece. The top is not removable. 1/24 scale. That’s the rear view. Here’s the front…
Underneath, the support legs are variable. You can pin them up to sit on a tractor unit or pin them down for freestanding. That wasn’t part of the original plan but it works.
Also going up is the 1/25 American style chrome tanker. A difficult model to make and to look after but I will do it again one day
It’s a selling/househunting day for me today. Things are pretty chaotic here and the sense of urgency is increasing. I have a hidey hole for some of the models I won’t sell yet and I have to take them there – such as this one that isn’t really finished yet –
Enough showing off. It’s music night later, so I’ll leave the blog in the capable hands of my much more cheery co-blogger and get back to the madness of life.
It’s all going to work out just fine in the end, even if it does feel like hell at the moment.
