optimus prime



here is the trailer started i am using the tamiya reefer trailer for the length and since his trailer is a reefer it's perfect for it also using the chassis from a regular tamiya box trailer to give the effect of the bogies(trailer wheels) slid up towards the front in order to have the rear overhang as what is in the movie will post pictures during the build hope you all enjoy and comment if you want good or bad ...thanks
