Fontaine Trailers

i would also like to see a Diamond Heavy Haul dual lane parameter truck/trailer combination


Yeah we need some drop decks for our boom sections and counterweights. Something like this too, so we can haul our LR-1280 around on *atleast out west*



You can't sue me... I don't know what I'm doing!!

A lowboy and stinger combo like Randy said would kick butt. CAW

I think you guys (Sword) have a good thing going now with Rogers, so why not build a larger Rogers lowboy ? The 3 and 3+1 55ton Rogers trailer are great, and really were the first detailed 1/50 scale detachable neck lowboys we had from the American market.
I'd really like to see a new detachable neck Rogers in the 80+ ton market with a tandem or tri axle jeep, tri axle lowboy trailer, and tandem axle stinger. Even a tandem axle jeep with a 3+1+1 lowboy would be great.






And if a tag-a-long is being considered, I'd like to vote for a nice tri-axle Rogers.

For us demolition guys out there how about a Clement frameless roll-off trailer and a couple of boxes?

Do not know how to post photos or I'd show my example.

Really love the idea of a tag-a-long. You got a tag-a-long now but no truck to hook it up to. Maybe make a the 357 so it will hook up or make a Petebilt 379 tandam thats got a longer cab protactor and more of a construction dump bed. If I was you I would make it a Peterbilt dump and trailer as one.




Thanks

Any trailer that perkins owns would be cool. Or Diamond heavyhaul dual lane. Also we need more step decks.

Hey admin, I don't know if you guys are just going to stick with trucks and trailers, but if you're making a KW T800, why not make a boom truck version, like shown here. (Preferably a 30 ton)

Manitex would make a great model boom truck!! And knowing you guys, you can vastly improve on the crane design from TWH's National 1400.

I am putting my vote with HeavyHaul as well....A T-800W twinsteer picker would look sweet with that, like the Mammoet truck I posted a while ago....

I'd also love to see a Walinga Bag /Bulk feed trailer....nobody makes these!!

hey admin,

Another thought on the trailer issue, how about a tub (half round) end-dump rock trailer??? Preferably tri-axle. I think it would look really good on a few road tractors in the 1:50 arena. It would really help out the "quarry diorama" fellas too, haha.

How about a few oilfield trucks. The drilling market has really taken off and these trucks are everywhere. And how about a big quad steer pole truck with winchs, just like the ones off the ice road truckers?

A twin steer T-800 would be awesome, along with a 2x2x2 go go with it!!!!

Hey, admin, can I ask you guys. If you were to produce the log trailer (Which I really hope you do!!!) would it be possibly to keep the cost around $100 or so, like you current lowboy. Cause that would be sweet!!!
