Gypsy wagon/vardo update

11 August 2013 - 01:08 PM

Been a while since last post. Just another quick update!  Interior just about done & lamps fitted & glowing. Have yet to hide wires & illuminate the wood burning stove. Next big challenge roof frame to carve & stain, & then fit the canvas roof. Sorry about the poor quality pics. Any & all comments welcome. Cheers. Andy.


Best glue for balsa

Any suggestions please? Been using humbrol balsa cement in tube but find it rather expensive & more air pockets than glue!!! Thanks. Andy.

The black rig started out same as the red original truck. Did a few modifications...Extended the cab & added aerofoil to the roof,(made from balsa wood). Mirror brackets made from large staples. Primed & painted. Added larger custom exhausts (chrome gas pipe) & finally fitted the lights! All comments welcome. Cheers, Andy.
