It is not any one camper. I am adding a few of the Shasta special items inside. I know it is tight but what can you do in 10 feet, still have the bed in the back and the details outside. Not totally sure how far I will go with the jellouse (sp) windows.
BTW: started about 10 this morning so it isnt that difficult a build. A week end project. it is all simple straight cuts so would be good project for first time scratch building.

Gotta love the campers :wub:

You did that since 10 this morning?! Wow! Incredible work! I'm thinking this and your Airfloat with 1950's tow vehicles would make a great 1950's campground diorama!

A diorama sounds fun, but i would like to have a nice vintage looking sign. I remember that in "The Last Starfighter" they had that sign in the opening scenes and thought that might be the type I am wanting. Simple net search and ...........nothing,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,nada,,,,,,,,,,,,,trailer court signs, never heard of them....................mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...................................image search,,,,web search,,,,,,,,vintage camper courts............a total void......oh well. :blink:

KennB :unsure:

Supose now I am going to find some weird pickup to make a camper for :lol:

Amazing and very fast work. Looks like a trailer craze is hitting the modeling world.

I agree with the Wifey, :rolleyes: (after 39 years of wedded bliss, this is just automatic) the Testors '50s pink, or aqua would both be right at home on this little cutey.

Fantastic! May I ask what type and thickness of plastic you used, and more importantly, how were you able to bend it?

Seeing the drawing just reminded me of my Late friends camper they restored . It was a little yellow and white Shasta . I hope that you get a chance to finish this .

Well we might need to start a CB because two days ago I started one and I only stopped because I ran out of parts.
