The making of...a Trail King scraper trailer

Custom scale model builders Carol and Wouter have recently started this next project of building a

  • Trail King scraper trailer

It is our goal for the coming period in this "Making of a ...Trail King scraper trailer" to show how this custom model will be achieved.

Carol and Wouter share their building skills through the photos with little notes guiding us in the construction process. Gradually it shows the making of a unique model by using the white metal Kit from Keystone Models MFG in 1:48th scale to create this Trail King scraper trailer. And off course Carol adds some extra features to make this heavy dude just a little bit more life like! WATCH!

Enjoy reading & watching!

The parts

After the kit made by Keystone Models MFG is unpacked follows the first inspection to check if all white metal and other parts like the stickers and tires of the Trail King scraper trailer are present. Secondly each individual component is checked very accurate and made ready for building and if needed this includes mainly the very careful filing of excess molding material and making all the parts so that they can be later joined together without any fitting problems.

Also in this 1st round all the individual parts are been thoroughly cleaned and degreased for the first time.
