T.Oscarssons 1:50 Winter Trailer Commission Build 2

December 18, 2022 · in Automotive · · 18 · 0.7K

I have been going to town with this trailer. I wanted a bit more heavy winter weathering than the main truck. I used many reference photos to achieve a similar look on this trailer. I will go over and pack the snow a little tighter or compact. I'm thinking of doing a little diorama for both the truck and trailer combo, which I already have something planned. The customer has not asked for a diorama, but just want to see how it looks when placed in a diorama setting for my own personal curiosity.

  1. It is clear that this trailer did suffer a lot from the winter weather, Charles @tiking
    Amazing weathering.
    Looking forward to the diorama if you decide to create that.

  2. Oh yes! Amazing snowy chilly looks, my friend Charles!
    Love it!

  3. Looks convincing Charles. Reminds me of my early morning commute during a snow storm. Some vehicles have snow on the roof and if your behind a tractor trailer you get a dusting of snow and slush as you pass. Adds to the adventure and another gulp of coffee. Slowing down and watching the speedsters spin out into the ditch is all too common in my world.

    Two thumbs up.

  4. This looks pretty real, reminding me on how dirty snow and ice will get when it stays around a bit too long. Great job!

  5. WOW! Cold just looking at it :). Great (as usual) work

  6. Very realistic, Charles (@tiking). Your techniques produce amazing results. I can't wait to see the diorama.

  7. Temp dropped 25F here looking at those pix.

  8. Another nice one, Charles!

  9. Great, Charles, looking forward to seeing the diorama. Will a passing cyclist be included?
