Frizzen -
If you wanted a belly-pan frame for that, I could CNC one for you in 1/8" alum sheet.
You'd need to figure out how you wanted to mount the axle, but I could put some mtg hole in for brackets or something.
If you sent me a sketch of what you wanted and gave me a week or so.

That's a tempting offer.
I was thinking this would just be a brass & wood home-made looking setup. 1940s Mechanix Illustrated plans didnt mention much cnc. A guy on another board made this observation: "I think the awesomeness comes from looking like "grandpa built the camper way back when... just after he finished the house dad grew up in." That's the feel I get from it - 2redrovers"

But since you've got the capability, i'd love to have a bumper-pull flatbed car / equipment trailer in 1/14. Something suitable for loading a bobcat, or a truck, or crane parts, or rocks, or pallet items on. Probably tandem axle, that doesn't look weird behind a little dumptruck.

Thanks guys, glad ya think it's looking ok so far!

The sidewalls are both mounted, and started setting up wiring. Axle upgrade in work, 1/8" steel, brass bushing, eclip.

Let's try out those interior lights




So why haven't you gotten farther with it in 3 months?


I shouldn't have listened to the guy on Scale4x4 when he said get you a guitar...

So how ARE you doing a trailer axle under this thing?


Tires have bushings over axle, trailing arms are same size bushings, so everything can spin seperate. Springy thing out of a clicky pen. Still prototype phase. E clips hold tires outboard side, probably needs it inboard too.


Looks about right. The coupler lower side was opened up to 5/32 for a light snap instead of a pry it off fit.


Knocked the stiffener / screw hiders off the back of the pan and threw some brass together.

Added the 'closet doors' so they can use the nose storage area

Entry step on the frame


Also added a pair of porch lights, on the same circuit as the dome lights

Now if i can get a bunch pictures printed out and installed, i'll be about ready to skin the roof.

Life keeps happening, so I still didn't get the pictures printed, so they aren't installed, so the roof can't go on before the meet...

Let's grab a 2 cell battery holder, 2 switches, 3 resistors and finally have it work self contained

Running lights.


Dome and porch lights.


Mount the door handle with latch

If i'm going to go out towing this on any more public roads, i better add in some more safety before the police notice and want to discuss things...




A jewlery thing (necklace spacer?), and some chain.

Now there's a magnet on bottom of the hitch drawbar. Snap the hitch together, stick the chains up and adjust slack. If i used 2 smaller weaker magnets i could do the chain cross better,

Another RC meet, got parked next to a Tonka Winnebago.


Site fees at the campground weren't bad, but there were lots of trucks idling all night, construction equipment running first thing in the morning. Don't *even* get me started on the tractor pulls going on nearby!!!
