Hi Team, 

This sketch video shows what I am thinking with the trailer. I have worked out a pretty smooth method for lowering and raising the two loading ramps-upper and lower. They are permanently attached with axle pegs. What do you think of this design? Also, I am working on an alternate tractor that is a 1935 style instead of the 1932 style. It might go better with the trailer which has some streamlining. I will post some sketches of the tractor tomorrow.

Another one to add to the growing list of future builds, where will I find the time?! The loading ramps look great and I like the idea of 4 different vehicles as a load.[smile]

What sort of material are you thinking we should use for this? Mostly I'm thinking about trailer sides.

Thanks for the commenrs I am planning to use 1/2" poplar from Home Depot or Lowe's. We have a new Menard's and they have a great selection of hardwoods. I might check them out before I get started. I have used 1/4" walnut on some things like this and it is really tough in cross sections.

Requesting feedback on the Wood Toy MoTown Tractor-Truck. I hope to launch this set right after we launch the Hot Rod Jamboree. All the cars for this, the Jamboree and the Super Hauler Car Carrier are the same scale. Moving right along!

I really like the articulated ramps on the trailer.
Having them permanently attached to the trailer will save pieces getting lost during play. 

A separate ramp, for instance, will not doubt get lost along the way.

Cheers

John, Would Hot Rod Freaky Fords fit on the car hauler? I thought this might add a different twist. 


If not I could scale them easily enough if the right size wheels are available.
