With Halloween right around the corner I thought it would be a perfect time to make a coffin trailer and why not put the Aflac duck to rest once and for all. Of course the trailer has to be pulled by something and what better than a 1929 Ford Model A.

Ford Flathead 460 with 3 deuces The 1929 Ford Model A is a diecast vehicle and I didn’t like the engine that came in it. I switched the engine to a Flathead Ford 460 with 3 deuces that should get that pesky duck to his final resting place in a hurry.

I made a license plate LST-RIDE for the Model A and OUTATIME for the coffin trailer.

The coffin trailer is made of wood along with the frame and I used a set of matching wheels and tires. I used pictures of the artwork from the Model A and manipulated them with my computer to the proper size, etc. for the trailer. The artwork on the trailer is all water decals.
