firstly,sorry for the delay(*OMG Mickey mouse* rain) right so here are a couple of pics,have to do a slight mod as the underside of my scania touches the floor as you reverse,so im either going to insert another piece at the front or else make the ramp part longer with a shallower angle,any comments please feel free good or bad

looks good but i would put a stopper at the rear edge to stop the trailer rolling off the back.

Not tryin to be funny here mate, but as ive worked in the industry... Health and Safety would have a field day with you on that, no suitable bund or stop at the tipping edge, no guard rails on the sides, should be chevrons on the ramp and warning signs telling you that its a tipping ramp and not a place to park before going to the shop... Lol

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Very nice Mate.. Will be nice with an alu hopper..

must see if i can get my hands on a scale figureeen,will hang a camera round his neck,he'll be h & s man!!!!!,hand rails im going to do.a bund? is that not for liquids? yes there is going to be a stopping block (before the trailer ends up in the bin/hopper) as for chevrons didnt know that 1,thought that would be the usa kinda thing,oh nearly forgot the handrails will be mounted on top off side guards incase i loose control driving down!!!

you know you cant climb a ladder at work unless you have...........wait for it.........................................................................................................................a ladder awareness certificate!!!!! oh and a 3 day coarse to get it first!!! :lol:

Apparently our Constabulary Officers cannot ride push bikes until they've had a suitable course of instruction. :puker: :pukel:

I'd leave the model as it is----adds a lttle excitement to the operation. 8-)
