Those Petes look really nice, Tim.  Is the big sleeper from the Revell of Germany kit, or did you modify the kit sleeper?

The sleepers are all the Revell/Monogram kit sleepers.  The larger is 48" size, made from two kit 36" sleepers.

The doors were created using thin plastic, a line scored on the backside and gently bent to create the pucker.
