1/32nd Scratch Pneumatic trailer COMPLETED

FME erk

Recommended Posts

I purchased the 32nd trolley acc from Iconicair and thought about other pieces of ground equipment that I could possibly have alongside the HK Lancaster when I come to build and display the beast . . . 

Although I have some details/photos of what was contained within I thought I would just go with the basic structure and have it with the canvas screen down, (it will save any embarrassment on  my part).

The plan


The basic frame


The suspension

This basically is a box unless you were to detail the inside with a small petrol engine, fuel tank, an air compressor and its air tank. This may be a slight cheat but I intend to display it alongside a Nissen hut in the background . . . .


Having now painted the square frame, next on the agenda with be the 'curtains'  down each of the four sides. 

I have a tow hitch to put in place as well as a small jockey wheel and the stability legs.

Done a little more . . . 

Just to put the stability legs in place, shown in the front, just about there I think although I am having to think about the colour of the canvas covers.

The one good photo I have seen of this trailer, located in front of a crashed Wellington, clearly shows these covers to be rather light in appearance ??
