Hello all I recently got the 1/35 TP Models u.s.army trailer w/generator and I can't for the life of me figure out what specific generator it is!?!?!?!? Reason I need it is the molding is just awful!!! I figured this would be a great thing though to test scratchbuilding on for the first time (it's very squarish so should be easy lol) anyways this is the kit in question...



any help would be greatly appreciated...I'm redoing the entire trailer frame to but that'll be AFTER i can get the generator right...ish at least =D thanks in advance

Hi Calvin,

the trailer is a M1101 Light Tactical Trailer, It is made by Silver Eagle Manufacturing. They have some good drawings on their homepage. I used them to scratchbuild my M1101.

The pictured trailer is the LTT-F Light Tactical Flatdeck Trailer.

Check out this brochure :

I guess that even this 3D one looks better than the 1/35 kit

thanks everyone that def gives me the right directions to head in...i've also found some pretty good pics again on iron planet so now all i need is to figure out the suspension parts lol...wondering if i should just use the "artistic guessing" there

The trailer has a torsion bar suspension with shock absorbers. Pretty easy to build. SKP Model has a good kit of the M1101.
Maybe this images will help.

LTT trailers have a huge potential. With and without canvas cover, with AM Tech hardtop. various generators attached plus the ultimate version carrying the launch rail for Academy`s RQ-7 UAV. I hope that Panda releases a good LTT with the M-ATV kit.

i'm sure it will be good but it would still have to be modified a decent bit. the trailer i'm trying to build is shorter (length wise) and with different wheel wells, lights, etc.
