Did some work for a friend to build a German 1943 Eastern Front Fuel Trailer from a set of plans found from an Austrian exhibit.
We used a little artisitc license, but this trailer can hold 2x Wehrmacht 200L drums and has workign leaf spring suspension and a jockey wheel and the wheels have bearings.
Also got 3d printed tyres and a sprung loaded and articulating tow hitch

We also have an option to use 40mm offroad knobbly tyres with slightly different wheel design

Super cool! Do you share the 3D files?

Dont share any of the files I'm afraid, but happy to print at a cost with the oil barrels included.
