Simi truck Flat Bed Trailer
The cab for the truck is basically the same as the dump truck design. I shortened up the chassis and added a hitch. That is the great thing about a simple design; parts cover multiple designs.
So I thought the flat bed trailer was going to be pretty easy design. It is a flat bed, no big deal, right? The rear wheels were going to drive me insane. My original plan was to cut them out at a 45 degree angle and then figured that for a basic plan that would be a pain to do. Then it was how to cut the recesses and then how do I cut the base? I am a power tool woodworker so I really did not want to chisel out an angle. So I settled on the current plan. Looks good and relatively simple.
