Do any kits have a 70s or 80s style tent


Recommended Posts

Do any kits have a 70s or 80s style camping tent? I will make one if i have to, but if there is one in a kit, i would prefer it

Also, do any kits have a small squirrel or little bird

The MPC Chevette annuals had a canopy that you could probably add to to make a tent. Looks like it came with some other things you might find useful, too...

This is kind of what i had in mind.  i could probably make it of out cloth, but it would take a long time since i am not much of a sewing expert

You might be able to make something out of thin cloth, cardboard or colored paper. I would think plastic would be too hard to work with and wouldn't look realistic. Cloth would have to be very thin to start, and I can't imagine you could actually stitch something like that in 1/25 scale. You would have to glue it.   

Or maybe look in the toy aisle at Target or Wal Mart? You'd be surprised what you might find sometimes.

I found this one:

Tent Premium Canvas Style Miniature Highly Detailed 1/24 Scale G Scale Diorama | eBay

and there is a Prieser one :

Preiser 45215 Camping Tent and Accessories Kit: Amazon.co.uk: Toys & Games

that is out of production.

I do not have interest or participate with these sites only researched for products
