Hi everyone, We’re jumping in and starting the build! I’ve got a good friend and client who is willing to help me get my trailer frame built! So, the game’s afoot!
We settled on the general design after visiting our new friends in Lovelock, Randy and Debbie. What a great day that was! We also reworked a few areas from members input and now need to see a few more cabinet layouts for both the interior and the galley. This is the general layout thus far.
We aren’t sure what the final cabinet layout will be or if the aft bulkhead will move around a tad. But that didn’t stop me from having a little model fun. I printed out my plans, broke out the sparymount, foamcore, matte board, shiny silver paper, my trusty exacto knife, and got to work.
This is the layout for the frame as it is today. Built out of foamcore to the scale of 2”x2” stock. The TD will be (at this point) 4’x10’x4’9”wide.
Does anyone see any problems or concerns whether it will work?
The next thing I knew, I was attaching the tongue box and hatch! She’s in 1/12th scale so 1” = 1’. Here’s the completed ‘proof of concept’ model. What do ya think?
There are a few ‘oopses’ here and there but all in all I’m pretty happy with the way she’s going to look. More to come soon.
