Thank you for the response. I did but to be honest there is vendor that supplies a 1:16 M8 Ammunition trailer. I also looked on german site www.xion.de. They sell a number of 1:16 ammo trailers but all of them are german.

If you can get one of our talented designers involved in this project we could probably 3D print these trailers. I can already do the tires and rims.

I'd like to do a Ben Hur 1 ton trailer, if somebody can get me some dimensions...

Not sure if this is the right trailer, probably not since it's 1/4 ton, but still might be of interest.

They show dimensions in English, so now you know how I feel when I have to convert all those stupid metric blueprints at work! :haha: 8) ;)

I'll give them a go tomorrow - might be enough on there to eyeball at least the box trailers.

Of course this will hold up the work on all the other projects :P

Is that modelled in 360, or did you download it?

I have some flexible PLA here, might be a good time to give that a whirl and see how well it does for leaf springs :think:

This is the M8 ammo trailer. The trailer was often towed by a Sherman tank to store additional ammunition

This is the only diagram of an M8 I can find, I'd need a few more dimensions than this tho to be able to do much more than just fudge it...
