No, not mine but I keep looking for the right one to park in my backyard and convert to my office!

Very nice work, I have had one similar on the drawing board for a couple of years...yours is awesome and needs a resin '49 Buick wood sided wagon with a straight 8 towing this puppy.

Incredible work, Ken! The finished model will be spectacular, I bet! I love those old trailers. I built a 1:1 teardrop five years ago, and a couple teardrop models. Your model might inspire me to build a similar model.

It is amazing to me that someone made this from scratch. Seriously why I am sticking with the hobby. I am not on this level now but hope to be someday. Simply incredible. Thanks for the inspiration

I have learned one thing.Never paint a whole body chrome :huh: It comes out nice but is very fragile and soft. My taping job was not great and have some touch up to do. It will be fine when I am finished.

I need to get better tape to do two colors. But it is all I had on hand at the moment.

I touched up the red last night. The one thing about the silver is that it takes forever to set up and is still kinda soft. For the next one I will have to find another silver.

The interior is almost finished. I am not getting to carried awaysince it will only be seen through the windows. Needs the floor covering and appliances painted yet.

I found a correct plate for it on the net,,1946 trailer plate.

I love campers....and this is going to be a cool build! Some model company needs to issue some camping trailer kits.

I agree, there are little to none out there now, I know I would pick up a bunch if they put them out there.

I know you got sidetracked into the 55 T-Bird concept, etc. but I'm drooling to see this one finished Ken.

And then...... when you do have all the others done, how about tackling this one? It's a Curtis Aerocar Land Yacht, circa 1932. It's located in the Louwman Museum, which may be somewhere in Holland, but I don't read cyrilic text, so I'm not sure. You may be able to get more pictures and info by contacting the museum at http://m400ru.livejournal.com/4819.html (The car is a 1932 Graham Blue Streak Coupe.)

Definitely a oddball and deserving of your scratchbuilding talents. Even if you don't tackle it, it's an interesting camper of the vintage era.
