BTW, Stuff: that is a cool truck model. I'm going to have to see if I can work lights into my model. Various replica parts, like the "holding tank" or the "refrigerator," could hold the batteries.

Re: Skoolie in skale...um, scale

The nose now has handcrafted "fenders" made out of white stock plastic and some curved plastic from the L700 cab.

Above the windshield is a mockup of the front roof section of an early-to-mid 1970's Winnebago. I took measurements of the real things (skoolie and 'Bago) and the roof piece would probably fit over the front roof section of the bus without removing the latter's structure. The sides would require adding straight frame metal and closing in with raw sheet metal or fiberglass. The idea (tentative at this point) is a best-of-both worlds look.

Here is a crude mockup of the interior: a model of the model, as it were:

The double bed behind the driver's seat can convert to a forward-facing passenger seat:

WOW! I am impressed with all you model builders--you sure have more patience and steadier hands than I do! Your modeling sure makes it easy to see the pitfalls. I guess it is too late for me--I'll stick with 1:1, hammer, welder, bandages and plaster casts etc. oh well.
