thats sick, how you guys create and utilize styrene always amazes me

Thank you.
Pretty simple project to create actually.
I'm looking forward to getting back on it this weekend.
More soon.



Huh, wow, Corex IS good for something! (Us sign guys hate that stuff, but it's cheap)

Looking great!

Thanks.
The corex has always intrigued me to build something from it.
Besides simple RC planes.

I'll probably be playing around with constructing more things from it.;)

Thanks again everyone for the views comments and encouragements.
Looking forward to getting it mostly built the next few posts.
Come on weekend, get here already...….:laughing:

Will you be able to tow this when it's finished?

Reminds me of the trailer that guy in Kill Bill lives in, way out in the desert. Some cars on cinder blocks, old tires, maybe a bathtub would make perfect landscaping to accompany it!

Being able to tow it is an option, although it will be used for the back yard course eventually.
I've already built a lot of other junk sitting on the shelf to go with it.

What the hell was that?!
Damn, I love the tree house. I was thinking of adding one to Smiggin?s now that the trees are big enough.

So, when did you get the tenament on wheels?
Oh, that uh, that there's an RV. Yeah, yeah, I borrowed it off a buddy of mine. He took my house, I took the RV. It's a good looking vehicle, ain't it?

I'm not sure what vintage of Trailer you're going after, but while i was researching for a wheeled dollhouse of my own i found these wonderful examples of fine interior decorating.

Haaaa
thanks Frizz.
Trailer house is on shelf still.
I need to order a load of really thin hobby grade ply wood for it.
One reason it's still sitting.
I tried wall papering it with a wood grain paper., Looked funny and wasn't happy with the results.

This will be a winter project nodoubts?.this years summer projects have me on the run and busy busy..
It will be finshed though.
Thanks for all the funny photos.

Weathering is addictive.
This thread makes me want to build 55 ikarus... Too cool to be true, good luck with those not so tiny accessories!

Since wood-paneling isn't structural, instead of getting the hobby plywood what about just getting some Wood Veneer?

https://www.woodcraft.com/categories/veneer

Cheaper, more wood types, way easier to find sellers. Though it'll take a while to get it to flatten out since it's not gluing to a more stable piece.

Trim to fit, throw some stain, scribe some panel lines, maybe hit the panel lines with Sharpie or India Ink if scribe is too subtle.

Plus even if it goes to hell later, it's just more scale as an old single-wide.
