Nice scratch built trailer Andy.

Did you paint or stain the bed timbers?

That's pretty awesome Andy. There's a lot more to it than I thought at first glance. Nice detailing.

Hi Al,

I painted it Sir, I used some Vallejo brown first then wiped some black over it with some kitchen roll, the white splodge was a pure accident, but thought I'd leave it there...

Many thanks again all...

Andy...

Great trailer, Andy. The Lotus looks to have had a hard life! Any issues with the Lotus kit?
I have it in the stash and its working its way to the top.
