    Alan,did anything happen with locating the builder of these trailers or with you being able to cast the Airfloat trailer?I live just two blocks from the Airstream factory and have photographed their 1935 Bowlus Road Chief.I have detailed photocopies of it In 1/25 scale as well with dimensions.

    Looking very slick.It's starting to look like something from a coach builder's shop from the 1930's or '40's.

    wow!Great stuff.It all makes sense now that I see it spelled out in detail.Thanks for sharing your tech with me.It is greatly appreciated.I will defenitly be using this soon.I just finished a 1921 Olds speedster based on a Jimmy Flintstone resin body and am not all that pleased with the black seat I used.I just may repaint that tomorrow with something more harmonious to the yellow body.If you will PM me your email address I will send you some pix of it.
    Thanks again for the help!!..........Tom Woodruff

    This is looking so very fine.I agree with all of your choices for colors as well.Will you please share your tech for getting that oh so perfect leather look surface to styrene.I have a couple projects that could surely benefit from that look.Thanks !!

    Blanket style seat covers
    Some time ago someone posted pix of a model with the seats covered with either Mexican or Indian style blanket material.This builder said they had found some ribbon that already had that pattern on it and simply cut the size they needed and glued it to the seat.I have looked everywhere(?)in fabric and craft stores with no luck.I have done one with the tape and thread method and am really not all that pleased with the result.If you have some extra to sell or can suggest a source I would certainly appreciate the help.Thanks!!

    The decision to eliminate the bumpers and brackets is absolutely the correct thing to do.That lengthens those beautiful curved front fenders and visually improves the overall design.

    I really like where this project is headed,very curvy,smooth and art deco influenced.What company released this kit?

    How was the Columbia two speed engaged on those early cars?I drove a Ford straight truck for a few years in the 1960's as part of my job delivering air cargo and that was activated with a small pull knob fastened on the right side of the floor shift knob where I could easily pull it up or push it down with two fingers as needed.
