TRAIL KING flip axle lowloader

Manufacturer: Alan Smith

Scale: 1:48

This is the Alan Smith Trail King 3 axle w/ fourth flip-axle lowloader

trailer kit in 1/48 scale

The model is cast in white metal by Alan Smith and arrives as shown above

Here is the finished product after I painted and assembled the whole thing,

The trailer is a 3 axle lowboy w/ a fourth flip axle

The trailer can be used as is for most loads...

...or can have the fourth axle flipped down for heavier loads

Now the 3 axle lowbed trailer has become a four axle lowbed trailer...

To secure fourth axle down a set of pins is inserted from underneath

The gooseneck is fully functional and can be detached
