That's a beauty! I need to go find one on the 'Bay. Have to add one of these to my vintage trailer (caravan) collection.

Good idea realgone58! I've done a couple of other things................

The front handle to wind the leg up and down and the spare wheel and carrier. I don't know whether they have one but as the spare wheel came with the body I thought I'd make an open tray from plastic card and mount it underneath at the back.

If your are a super detailer (as I am not) this would be the casting to try. Imagine opening up and hinging the door, cutting out the wondows and adding clear plastic, fitting a floor and complete interior and adding the exterior awning! Now wouldn't that be just great.

Hi Manny, I hope things improve for you next year. We have a problem here in the UK with Gas and Electricity prices. The 'energy' giants are increasing prices by 10% but we don't get anymore that 1% in wage rises if we get any at all and for me on a pension it's really tight so when I buy a kit or resin like this Airstream I have to make the most of it!

Merry Christmas Manny and have a happier new year in 2014.
