Thank you very much!  B)

 

 

 

 

In the beginning, I wanted to use the original fuel tank, but I do not like it more...

 

... the one from the Beer Wagon kit fits in my opinion much better...

And it goes on.

 

 

 

Here is another small, but important part, it comes also from the Chuck Wagon kit...

Thank you all very much for the kind comments, I really do appreciate them!  B)

 

 

 

I don't get impressed very often on this site but this is some dang good work so far. Very straight forward and talk about reusing anything on hand,nice job.

Now the question is what are you going to do if you get the actual kit of this?

 

 

This, I started to do out of necessity, because where I live, there is not even the model kits that I want, because it lacks the great demand and the model building is dying out...

 

... so I began to exploit other opportunities...

 

 

 

Hmm, I no longer believe, ever to get this kit, so...

And it goes on.

 

 

I mount the pipe cleaner first, let the pictures speak...

Well, to install the stove pipe was more difficult, than I thought...

 

 

... a little color and mounted, the lower part is simply...

... but, the hole in the roof is too small for the ribbed section of the stove pipe...

Thus, I had to fix the second part of the tube, coat the pipe cleaner, together with the roof and the house, and the house fix with the base, at the same time...

That the oven makes some sense, there must be installed a chimney pipe...  ;)

 

 

I've tried a few things, but just this, looked good...

 

... plastic drinking straws!

 

Whatever the reason, all of these I had at home, ripped when I turned around a little bit...

... only the yellow remained flexible, two pieces are needed for this project, along with a "pipe cleaner"...

... cut to the required length...

The idea is, if I will bend the tubes in desired directions and angles, that the tubes remain stable through the pipe cleaner...

I slots now the ends of the tubes...

...that I want to connect with each other...

... now it still needs a little color...
