People still made jokes about them, but trailer parks became a haven for those fleeing the chaos of the inner cities. Less chance of being blown away by a tornado than by a Glock....
My trailer park has 3 trailers, because that's how many come in the kit. I'm thinking of expanding it, but it takes up a lot of space.
On the other hand, a table filled with a trailer park has a lot of potential.
The kits are simple to assemble, and fit well. They are also designed for quick & easy painting. All doors and windows are separate.
They are moulded in aqua, pink, and silver, and look pretty crappy. The plastic doesn't show the detail well, and frankly, looks like plastic.
Once all is dry, assemble the kits and weather them to taste.
Here's a rear and end view.
I chose to make 3 'types' of trailer:
The Basic model is all brushed aluminium: I painted the whole trailer silver.
The Intermediate model has white sides & roof, all else is aluminium.
The De Luxe. I masked off the lower sides to give the trailer brushed aluminium trim, and painted the roof & awning red.
Of course all trailers aren't white, but I wanted to get away from the plasticky look of the models.
The kit gives good results with little effort, and provides plenty of gaming possibilities.
