Might look good with some in-scale tanks, looks about 1/18. Scratchbuild a low-loader

If I run accross some wheels about half the size of the ones on the trailer now I will consider doing that,it would look much more realistic.I would make it like what we call here a "fifth wheel with a goose neck". BIGMIG

Here is a pic of my tiger (1:16) on my bruder truck. looks a bit big for the tank but it should handle it fine. My tamiya debate is to get a tamiya and use it or use the chassis and put a 1:16 scale top on it if it fits.

yup. little bits of hang over on each side. those grey chain things on the back part are supposed to reach up to the ramps, but they dont quite reach. Wild Willy also uses that trailer for a tank mover. didnt know that till i bought it.

Thats a nice looking dump truck and trailer,but just don't look like something the military would use to transport a tank.Looks like he use two rigs to make one,I do like that trailer for a tank. BIGMIG

well from what i can tell he built it as a puller truck. he puts weights on the back to give it traction. i would go either just truck or put a jeep in there.

Still working on this truck,but it's kind of on the back burner because I got side tracked buying the 1/6 scale tanks.Just a couple of pictures,and by the way it does a pretty good job of pulling the two tanks on the trailer on a flat smooth surface.But the steering is not working that great,if it had better steering control it would work great.It is geared a lot to high though,should have a lower gearing.

With a little bit of paint this could be a great tank transport,

caragan1970: thats what i have, but i paid only about 40 CAD for it. not euro :P

I have been looking into getting a tamiya truck, but that is some fine cash right there. as soon as you add a tranny and a rear end you start talking money.

I offer up this alternative, only because I do not like cabovers: BRUDER MACK Tieflader mit JCB Baggerlader
May be more easy to convert to an older looking rig as well.

only problem with these bruder trucks is that there is no steering/drive stuff to them. they are just meant to go straight and be used by little kids. so basically the only thing that is usable is the cab and accessories.
