      This could go in the Scale RC section, but since there's no radio gear in it I'll drop it in here.

      As usual this build started by accident. I was looking around the LHS Let's go camping....again (1960's Aloha travel trailer) and came upon a pair of tires that looked like 1/10 scale street radials. My scale muse whispered in my ear "Airstream trailer" (actually it was one of my crawling buddies, damn him). So we talked about how cool it would be to carve up a big block of pink foam into an Airstream. Then I remembered how much fun I had building the slide-in camper and decided to do a full-detail build.



      This is where I am right now after one night of slinging styrene Let's go camping....again (1960's Aloha travel trailer) . Eventually it'll be weathered inside and out like a 40-year-old trailer. But I gotta build it first!

      And I did buy two pair of tires so the Airstream will get built eventually.

    You got the mouse. Did you leave any droppings?

  3. I dunno, mouse poop is pretty small. Maybe some poppy seeds would work.

  4. Potential tow vehicles:



    Gurgel



    Truggy (will require one hell of a drop hitch)



    Metal Fume Fever Scout



    Eagle SX/4 (wrong scale but still looks cool)



    FJ40 (wrong scale, not as cool)



    TTB camper special (redneck condo?)



    Scout II (another problem with scale)

    And because rats aren't the only campsite pests:

    Poppy seeds. That's the ticket. The tow vehicle has to be the camper. They go together perfectly even if the scale is a little off.

  6. Some progress today. Just about ready to put the roof on.



    Rain caps over the windows & door



    Spare tire and license plate. The plate light went AWOL a while ago.



    And this is for that effing rat.

    Yes. The shot gun is a perfect touch. I forgot all about that.

  8. Damn hippies leave beer bottles everywhere.



    Everywhere, I tell ya.



    Did I say everywhere?



    Got a good coat of Aluma Seal on the roof. Should slow the leaks down a little.



    View thru the front window



    Oh goodie. More beer bottles.



    Outside's kinda grubby...



    Too busy drinking beer & hitting the bong to give the poor thing a wash I suppose.



    There's a very thin wash of flat brown on the windows, too.

  9. Here's the thing about forums: they're a great place to share ideas.

    One such shared idea was a station wagon for the tow vehicle.

    Stay tuned for a '71-'72 Country Squire.
