Dimensions of trailers used by British and Commonwealth WWII and Post WWII - BAOR /BFG

Recommended Posts

Good evening gentlefolk of the HMVF   I've a request for little assistance if possible.  I'm former REME VM with a few hobbies, one is  scale model making (1:35) and I'm  working on getting a fleet of models of the kit I worked on  or with during my service and also those that REME have used over the course of time.   At the moment I'm looking for the dimensions of the 2 Whld 10 and 20Qwt Trl from WWII and also the 1T 2 whl trailer ( Brockhouse / Rubery Owen?),  also the 4 Wheeled versions of the Brockhouse / Rubery Owen versions used as office / binner trailers and as the 27KVA flat bed version. 

Dimensions of wheel base and draw bar angles would be great as well as any pictures that might be usable for taking dimensions to scale down.      Best regards  Dai B

The books don't include the office trailers unfortunately, but 1:76 scale plans of those (and the other two) exist.
