'69 Winnebago D22

Post by zenrat on Tue 10 Dec 2013, 12:10 pm

Next year i'll be trying to scratchbuild one of these.

It's a 1969 Winnebago D22.
I've been collecting parts and supplies and it will be sitting on a 1/32 truck chassis and rolling on 1/32 Truck wheels (thanks Al).
Body will be built from styrene siding and sheet.
It'll be a kerbside but may have a lift off roof with interior detail.

Why?  No idea.  To see if I can maybe.
My choice of D22 was because the size of the sheets of styrene siding dictate how long a body I can make without a seam.

I found these plans for a paper model which I have scaled up to 1/25 to get the basic shape.

It's not my template.
I found it here.
http://www.ourboler.com/kids-activities/vintage-trailer-paper-toy-templates/winnebego-1969-vintage-paper-toy-template-model/
I hadn't thought about having it as a tow rig but if it had magnets built into the sides you could mix & match signage...

Eagle 5 is a latter model Winnebago.  It has too many curves on it for my liking.
When I was dong research (there's a first) I did find pics of a model of the Eagle 5.
Didn't save them but a google should find them.

Interesting..... keen to see this one evolve though. I guess you could say you are building a box that is outside of the box?

...to immediately run into a problem.  I seem to have allowed myself to run out of styrene sheet of an appropriate thickness.
I'd better do some shopping.

What is interesting is the crap that passes for dolls house furniture.
I had a goggle to see what was availible for 1/24 dolls houses (thought it might be easier to modify sink, stove toilet etc than scratch build them) and it's all barely shaped garbage.

You might have to chase down one of the camper / wedge kits where someone has built the camper but as a sealed unit and still has the interior left over. It would be a starting point. All in all it looks great so far.

I've been finishing off other stuff Tim. I'll get the sheet on-line. I couldn't do that with the siding as I needed to see the size of the grooves before I bought it.
Probably won't be finished by Ballaarraatt but I should have the shell and chassis together for the primer table.
Flintstone - Maybe. I've got copies of the Winebago sales brochures for 1969 which have pretty good interior layouts shown so I may scratchbuild it all. An RV toilet isn't going to be the same as a full size house toilet anyway. Does the racers wedge camper even have a toilet? Is it to scale? I've got the '65 El Camino camperr and it's way too low. It's like it's designed for Tom Cruise.

Zenrat the camper is 1/25 no toilet in it, one way to make one is use some Fimo putty to make the toilet out of it, is like a soft putty that you can shape it to what you want then it has to be heated in the oven to set then it can be painted. You could also make your sink with it too. They use Fimo to make beads once heated it becomes very hard.
