Welcome to the fun.

After you have made 5 posts you can post pictures in an album for all of us to share in your fun. We are eye-candy-aholics, in case you're wondering. It is also helpful to take lots of pictures just as a record of how you built it and what things worked and didn't work so well.  The travel trailer looks like fun. Will it be a theme of some particular trip you are planning in the future or already went on?

I have a retro/vintage theme planned pulling inspiration from the vintage campers and travel trailers I love in full scale. I have been last looking at green paints and fabrics to set the tone and color scheme.

Welcome to the little family, Gretchen.  Many, many  years ago we lived briefly in Coshocton, OH.  After the winter of 1978 I made a deal with God that if He moved us back to FL I'd never, ever complain about the heat, and the following summer we were in Jacksonville, FL.

Sounds like a great way to gauge my work and the progress along the way. Sometimes we get so caught up in what is in front of us, we forget the process that has gotten us where we are and the actual progress made.

    • Travel Trailer Screen Door
      By WBrownIV
      Next on the list was the screen door. I wasn't going to have one but every photo I came across showed one. Okay. The challenge came to finding scale screen material. Brae had shared what she used for her screen door but I could not find it locally. I hunted everywhere. Luckily at Michaels the associate showed me Tulle. It looked good to me!  I made two frames and sandwiched the Tulle between them. Then painted aluminum. It didn't turn out half bad.

      Here I have them lit. I really like how they look. I have two amber lights for the front markers. I can finally check these off my to do list!
    • Clearance Lights for the Travel Trailer
      By WBrownIV
      The next order of business to come up with some clearance lights. Using 1/4" styrene  tube I cut some small sections and profiled them to the contour of the curving roof line, drilled holes for the led's and epoxied them in place.
    • Painted Window Frames

      Here is the final result after airbrushing the frames with Tester's Model Master Aluminum paint. 
    • Removing imperfections on Frame
      By WBrownIV
      You may find that after sanding the Bondic there may be some slight imperfections on the frame. I used a long standing secret among plastic model builders.........Pledge Floor Gloss (formally know as Future Floor Shine). Among its many uses it to render clear plastic (such as model airplane canopies) crystal clear, act as a clear coat on model car bodies and can simulate glass lenses on aircraft instruments. Dipping the frames into the Pledge a few times produces a smooth, clear acrylic coating that looks great once painted.
