I used to carry one model on front of my scooter and one on the rear now I no longer need to travel by train I purchased a bicycle trailer for carrying a child fro Holland via ebay the instructions were in Chinese/Dutch translation so bad my Dutch brother in-law couldn't under stand them. And converted it to carry 2 possibly 3 models as the pic's show 3 is a squeeze.
Very pleased with it as seen in the pick didn't even feel it whilst towing.

I removed every thing bar the frame which narrowed 6" so that it fitted between my shed and the unit, I then welded 2 lengths of 25mm angle and the original front mount for the Sub chaser..
I'm considering a second level and frames for my yacht and catermaran.

I haven't been totally idle & wrapped up in Dr's appt's.

Phil the boxes are made from large cardboard boxes cut to shape and tacked together with super glue the coated with polyester resin outside when dry the insides got same but glass matt added to the corners, it makes a sturdy container for transporting models.

Smart idea Damien I used a similar method to make my SS Viking and she's as solid as a rock
