there is a nice slide in camper that's 1/24 or 1/25 that comes with a diecast truck at walmart in the toy isle. Believe its under $20.00

thanks gasser & stang!

final part of our set-up came, our car-topper

lot of excess junk to clean out, & a nice big flat spot on the bottom to fix

got a little bit done. cleaned out, fixed the bottom, added some ribs, still got to make oars, a johnson 8 horse, fuel tank....

don't have a trailer for my 1:1, so i don't need to build one

when we're camping i haul it like this, otherwise it goes in the back of the truck

just caught back up with this, awesome job on all of it, camper looks terrific!!

 

I don't know if you have a hobby lobby store near you, but if so, they have a good selection of what I assume is balsa wood in various shapes/sizes, and a few different bits in the doll house section- actual wood flooring and some 'beadboard' that could be made in to flooring.

 

this is the doll house wood flooring,

that's in a 25th scale rig trailer.

no tbill, nothing like that where i live. the mom & pop shop in town just moved, & they got out of models-R/C's & trains only now, next nearest is a 40 mile drive. it's not bad for most of what i like, if...big if, he has it in stock. usually something like that cool looking wood i would have to go online to get. i wish i had some of it, the decal just is'nt the same.

finished the boat-still got oars & motor to do. full pics in utg
