Thought you guys would like to see these vintage scratchbuilt travel trailers in 1/25 scale! I don't know who the builder is, I got these pics from a 1:1 vintage trailer facebook site I belong to. They are done in aluminum, just like the real ones. There are two different length late '40's-early 50's Airfloat trailers (the ones with the round windows), a couple of Airstreams '40s and '50s, and a rare front enterance '30s Bowlus Road Chief. This guy should make these available as kits, I'd love to have some.

One of the Mints had a beautiful Airstream trailer about 10 years ago! I found ne at one of the toyshows for only 150 bucks, but I was too late, when I asked about it, it was already sold, and the show had JUST opened!!! THOSE little trailers are beautiful!!!! i wonder if he sells them to the general public????

I know the Bowlus Road Cheif has an interior, very well done too. The entire body lifts off to see it. As for the Franklin Mint Airstream, that's a late sixties model, very well done, but very expensive now. Usually see them go for up to five hundred a piece on the 'Bay. Glad I bought mine from the mint back when they were available. I too wish we could find this builder. If I do find out who it is, I'll post it here. I could do a master for flat sided trailers like the Airfloats pictured here, but I don't think I could ever get the symmetry right to do a "rounded" one like the Airstreams.
