    I was inspired to put this together between seeing a real trailer like this under construction at a rental shop, and finding a banged-up Greenlight equipment trailer at Goodwill that looked like a nice basis for this project soon after.


    I started by cutting one piece of basswood scale lumber to size, cut 5 more using it as a pattern, glued them vertically to the trailer deck, made walls and a roof from basswood scale siding, painted up the whole lot, added a wire mesh divider with folded-up drop gates onto the built-up side access window frames, "caulked" all of the gaps and seams, added a dark brown/grey paint job along with cell phone/wi-fi antenna, junction box/plug-in box, exhaust fan, air conditioner, trash barrel, propane tank, running lights, and marked out areas for windows and a side door, and detailed the barbecue pit/smoker, which was made from a cut-up ballpoint pen cap and 4 pieces of scrap wood. Almost all of this was scratchbuilt with material diverted from the waste stream, that one would not expect to be used in 1/64 automotive/train diorama modeling.


    Window, menu board and doors were made in Evans Designs Model Builder.

        Well, this is sure different! I suggest the vendor add more variety to the menu.

          Thanks! Actually putting words on the menu wouldn't have been very visible in diorama scenes

            That's one Ramshackle trailer.! ... I don't think i'd be buying any burgers from them (Guessing they'd be using roadkill). Nice work

                    That's pretty neat! A lot of work in that.
