Hi just getting feed back on the work in progress, it can carry a 1/8 and 1/10 slash comfortably, still needs to finshed putting mud guards around wheels and ramp at the back that will also act as a tailgate. This will be multipurpose as I am also making fit a boat.i will also put tie downs and a winch at the frount to hold cars in place. What do you think so far :). Also how much do you think its worth. Only positive feedback.

Why only positive feedback.?
The trailer is looking good so far but negative feedback, as long as its not said in a nasty way, is what makes & helps people improve & do or make things better.

Something like, I like the way you have done the ramps, but using pop rivets to secure them to the hinges & trailer makes it look slightly rushed & less authentic, using small screws/bolts & nyloc nuts would make it look more like the real thing.

Some made up leaf springs would look good on it also & would make it look more authentic as well.

you also forgot to mention the diamond plate pattern is 8X too big to be 'scale' ;)

No didn't forget that, but getting diamond or checker plate to suit the scale is probably pretty hard to find, the plate used is probably about the smallest available anyway, unlike screws/bolts for the ramps that would be easy to do & also make it easier to remove ramps for future mods or adjustments if needed.

For small amounts of alloy off cuts, there's a seller I've bought from on quicksales.

I'll look up his user name so I get the spelling correct.

He sometimes has small dia. Rod, hex and square. Has copper, brass and some other stuff.
Quicksales profile is set to away, but eBay listings are current.
