This is a better look at the half top. Sometimes called catch trailers, these are handy for cowboys to load roped cattle without getting off their horse. You lock the bovine up front then close the center gate, and load your horses and head home.
The floor of both trailers are made from a piece of scribed wood with styren channel superglued on the edges. The frames and goosenecks will be made from brass. The trailer will hitch to the pickups in a functional manner, but I have yet to develop anything solid for tires and wheels.
I still want to build some RC Vehicles but right now my dreams are bigger than my fabrication skills.

In the long, long past...Uncle Bob built a nice TTn3 model of an RGS (Rio Grande Southern) loco. I can't seem to supply the link to it (probably due to doofus-ism) but if you click on "search" then put in TTn3/Uncle Bob, the 2010 thread shows up. Bob was starting to build a TTn3 layout but got "sidetracked" by a scale large enough to ride in (Bountyland Railway). Check it out if you want.
