Sorry Fred, I'd forgotten about SMBC's gear. Although I haven't bought any of his restroom stuff, I have bought tyre changers and other workshop item from him, all AA1+ castings. There is another company in Canada that also does restroom items, but can't remember their name at the moment. SMBC is the better quality tho.

There's also Scale Equipment Limited

Here's their plumbing page

I haven't used any of their stuff so I can't comment on quality but they do seem to have a good reputation and have been around for a long time

If you are looking for a smaller toilet try to track down a Fujimi "For Coach Coin box & Toilet"  #112619. It is only 1/32 scale so it might be a good size for a camper. It is for use with their 1/32 scale buses. You should be able to pick one up for around $15.00 from most Japanese model retailers. I also found a web site in Singapore that had doll house furniture that was pretty well done. I'm searching my old web sites to find it, when I do I'll let you know. They had a kitchen that was awesome and some nice furniture. They also sell toilets. This is an awesome build update often please.

The open road camper kit from AMT had a toilet. You can check it out when you're up here in April Fred if you want.

Not an official one Tim. But I am adept with gaffer tape, have got the plumbers crack down pat and am always ready to put my finger on a warm trickle

Thanks for all the sources of stuff folks. I'll research them.
And Rob, i'm never happeir than when rummaging through other kit boxes. Especially other peoples. I'll definately take you up on that offer.

Well I got a consignment of styrene sheet delivered yesterday and as it's too hot to paint (it's drying on the brush before I can get it onto the models) I got on with this.
I made a floor and attached it

In order to get an idea of the size of the thing here it is with my largest built up car (AMT '70 Impala).


Next stage is to cobble a chassis together.  Allan very kindly sent me these 1/32 Truck parts which I will utilise.

This is looking great. it even looks fun to build.
the latest episode of Roadkill (on Youtube) has the Dodge version of this.
they pulled the 440 out of it for a 68 Charger.
but they had some fun with it first. you could get some ideas off it.

Thats looking great mate. With the truck chassis in front of it, you can not see the wheel arches, it would easily pass as a road side take away shop.  Very Happy

They always look fun to build Shoey when you are dealing with large pieces.  It's when it comes to small fiddley parts I tend to get distracted...
As far as I can tell from the brochures I gleaned from the interweb all the Winnebagos (all the '69 models anyway) were built on Dodge Chassis.
I did toy with the idea of kitbashing a Lindberg Dodge L700 for the chassis but decided it would be simpler to make the first one a kerbside.

Front & back.  The yellow smeg is Tamiya polyester filler - 2 part stuff that stinks to high heaven but is the mutts nuts as far as I am concerned.
