Junk man's trailer

This was intended to accompany my shop truck, but it has won contest awards all by itself. This was a lot of fun to build. The bed is from a '53 Ford pick-up. The chassis is scratch-built and the floor of the bed was removed and replaced with basswood. The rusting was done with acrylic craft paints and baking soda, but the layered paint effects were done using the salt technique. The front basket is scratch-built as is the compressed air tank. The cardboard box was made of paper bag material stiffened with white glue. The orange crate, from basswood with a photo reduced label.
