Excellent work TC. :thumb: :thumb:

When you get finished with the model, you can build one in 1:1 scale.

Even Train Clowns need a retirement home.

Fantastic Work TC!!!!!!

A Unique idea and an excellent build.

Make up 3,4 or 5 of em and you got yourself a Marksberry RV Park ...
Add a bandstand, bluegrass band and a few hay bales and you got the makin's of a Ho Down ...
Animate it with a pig on a spit, roasting over a fire, and you got a contest entry diorama.
Hmmmm sound FX could be done also.

We could have you workin' on this lil scene for the next 2 years.

;)

And it all started with one lil classic min pickem up truck.

OK, I was just ramblin.

;)

Great stuff TC.

Looking forward to more:thumb:

WOW TC!

The banjo and adirondack came out really well.

That is a great scratchbuild you're doing ...

... and to a have a picture of a real "redneck motor home" like that!

Looks pretty comfortable.

I wonder what the inside looked like?

Hi, it's me again.


Lets see if we can wrap this up.


On went the roof and it looked like this.





The chimney and part of the tar paper roof.
Still needs some powders to add tone.





I put the exhaust on and I found out that it is not a good idea to put CA glue on wood as it bleeds uncontrollably.
Still needs weathering.





I made an antenna out of some fine brass wire and a styrene rod.





One to show how things are shaping up over all.
You will notice the chair and banjo is on the back porch.





Now you may have noticed that I haven't posted for a while.

I still have been getting things done a bit at a time.
Perhaps I'm not completely done on this build, but I am saying that's enough for now.

There are a few more things to add once this gets a home on a new diorama I am planning,
but in the meantime, I have a few surprises for you followers of this thread.

Here's the mobile real estate.





Out front there is a patch on the edge of the roof, rust on the grill and bolts to hold everything in place.





Here is the whole passenger side.
Everybody needs a ladder, you know.





I never did get flowers for the window box.





The back porch has a few things added.
That's a corn liquor jug beside the chair.
My printer is such a piece of junk, that this is the best licence plate I could print.





I made the lamp.
Turned it out of styrene.
The shade is tin foil.





A joke I made for you guys.
Every modern motorhome has a Biffy, well so does this one!














Of course, a trailer like this needs the correct coupling to the main rig.  ;)








 
:bg:

I was having so much fun turning things out of styrene.
I also made the following, except for the milk can for the sour mash.





I had fun making jugs.





The whole shootin' match ready for the diorama.





So there you have it.
This goes in the "Done" pile for now.
I hope you enjoyed my little surprises.

One more obligitory "With a penny for scale" pic.





Thanks fer lookin' Happy Easter.


TC  :moose:
