I love the base idea. It gives you the room you need to occupy it in comfort. :cylongold:

Is your Raider going to move under its own power? Or will it be towed, and displayed?
(Either way - LOVE IT!!!)

So it looks to me that is made to be towed backwards, and the rear wheels are off the ground while in tow, and then once arrived you are to lower the Raider trailer off the tow arm, and use the rear wheels to maneuver the Raider into attack position, and photo ops. :cylongold:

Battleship gray was a common color used in the production.

Grey is the safe colour for sure. But seeing as mine isnt 100 % standard in shape or size i wondered if i could try something like silver or black or something
