MARKERS UNIVERSAL Trailer
Commission to make a studio scale Transporter trailer from Gerry Anderson series UFO (first photo) as the client has the original tractor from the show.
I was sent an original wheel used in the show to guide me and I used this to dictate the size of my blueprints. Then a fairly straightforward matter of fabricating the trailer
from foamex with styrene cladding. Kits used were hard to source, so all the detail on the front face was scratchbuilt. Colour was matched to a piece of the tractor, safely
protected from 50 years of accumilated weathering after the show, inside the vehicle, so needs this extra weathering to look more genuine, at some point.
