Hi,

just built a small "Hot Dog Trailer" for my town. Nothing complicated, but I´m glad I finally managed to build something with wheels...  :sweet:  :sceptic:
Comments and criticism are welcome! :classic:

Nice idea! My city needs something like this. I especially love the use of the racer's soda drink brick. :thumbup:

That's very nice! Wouldn't want to buy my hot dogs there, though - the owner looks a bit too grumpy and that rat makes me wonder what kind of meat he's really selling...

no no, that looks typical, actually; taco trailers in LA look like that lol

I do think the not-so-clean image fits the MOC nicely.

I really like your trailer. The missing tail light is a great detail.  :thumbup:

The hot dog trailer looks nice, also I like how you 'aged' it by using tan and white colour combination (some paint missing, I am right?), and the missing light is great. However, I'm not so sure about getting a hot dog there.  :sceptic:

Paint missing, dirt, primer... something like that yes. :wink:

The owner of the establishment got a "Western Face" (some great faces in that theme).
The man with the bottle got a face from 1381.

Great idea, nice touch to make it not only out off white bricks!

Very nice little build. It definitely looks true to life whenever I've seen a trailer selling food.

Only the best comes from out of a vehicle.

Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see more.

The only thing I'd add is a folding sign similar to the trailer in 6345.

Awesome MOC. I'm really digging the gritty ghetto style.

Yes, that would be great! I actually tried to include something like that, but I came to the conclusion that the size of that folding sign would have to be big enough to cover the window... and that would ruin the "tinyness" of the trailer I'm afraid.  :look:
One of those eagle stickers from 6345 would be a nice add though! :wink:


At the moment I'm waiting for some Bricklink orders, and therefore I have some time for playing around with other things....
