I made the body of my SC250 from a cardboard bin (fin is an original, found in London being used as a plant planter/pot).IMG_8615.JPG.fb010de2dbdd701faf6f38cfe87073e7.JPG

Upkeep, Tallboy, Grand Slam and the 1200 lb Blockbuster used either the larger E type trolley or the H type which was an E type with loading winches.
