Car Transporter Trailer Kits

Recommended Posts

Google has proved no use and I have had no joy searching the forum. 

 

Anyone know now of any 1/24 scale commercial transporter trailers.  Or is it likely to have to be scratch built? 

 

Was thinking about different ways to start displaying models. 

 

Any leads or advice is appreciated.

 

i look forward to any responses.

Really limited market but there appear to be a couple of options available. Will look into the super dolphin, as there was a rebox  in 2015. 

 

Thanks for for your help. It’s very much appreciated

No problem! I hope you can find something to your liking. Scratching one of these would be a serious challenge 🙂

I have found a super dolphin and ordered from a Czech shop online. £85 inc shipping. Bargain as there is one on amazon for over £1000 😂

At first I misread your post and thought you said £100 ... but no the price is indeed a lousy $1475 hahaha

 

You've just invested in early retirement 😉

Just to update those who stop by, I received my package yesterday.  I ordered from MN modelar, they are a shop in the Czech Republic.

Excellent shipping time and the product was very well packaged. I can recommend them if your after something obscure.

No problem @Admiral Puff 

 

I hope it helps direct a passer by towards a kit they may want.  Im sure they were out of stock when I was looking as I see that it is a restock.

I’ve been looking at that kit, how detailed is the tractor unit? Is it a good kit or a bit basic?

Pretty sure that AMT did a commercial one way back in the 60's in 1/25th scale. Hope this helps. The Japanese one in an earlier post looks a good bet. There is a single vehicle trailer from South Eastern Finecast and MotoBitz makes some resin stuff to semi scratch build one from plastic card.

@richellis I just saw this post, apologies for the delayed response.

 

I just popped out the shed for you and took a couple of sprue shots and instruction sheet shots for you; shown below.  Hope this helps.

Perfect, thanks. I’ll treat myself to one, just brought from the same place you used.
