Then all 3 back together but I have to reconnect the bracing still but here is how it looks.

Now since the truck is a 1 5/8 taller than a stock semi I need to make a new neck for the trailer. I am going with the set up the HET M1000 has with a bending point at the front of the trailer that the neck hooks too. Also the neck will be made out of 1/2 plastic sheet..

Thanks Goose. The tires have sort of a rubber tire around a hard rim..

Question, with so many wheels, How does it manage the turns?:confused:

In 1:1 this trailer has 40 tires on it and they are in pairs of 2 on both sides of the trailer and each set turns when fully loaded by hydros. I am not going to do that I am just building it this way for my son it will turn with no issues cause it will never have enuff weight that you cant turn it..

if you want, google a "centipede" trailer, or michigan 8 axle. they turn, with up to 5 axles on the ground. alot of tire scrub, and frame flexing!

Yeah we have alot of them around us too them haul asphalt in them and they have no issues turning but they scrub the hell out of the tires on them..
