Hey Chris, that's a little tiny image to work from. If you find that the profile is what you want, I can output it as a vector or as a large image file with a grid. Just let me know what ever you would like. Been a professional designer for about 33 years; makes it easy to help friends.

Cheers, Dave

Been busy working on making a full size mock-up of the cabin area. We wanted to sit inside her and to check the cabinet space etc.

Image
This is the front passenger's side.

Image

Image
Here's the passenger's door open with the forward cabinets indicated.

Image
In this view you see the aft cabinets indicated.

It sure isn't very big but will be comfortable.

All the best,

Dave

Full-sized mock-up? Amazing! :o

Did the two of you lie down inside it on the patio to see if you were comfortable sleeping in it together?

Why bother making it in wood? Just epoxy the cardboard and duct tape it to a trailer! :lol: :lol:

Dave, nice work on the mockup :thumbsup: I like that rolled lower portion of the cabinets.

Hi. I've been a lurker for a bit and normally wouldn't post on someone's build thread but just have to say.. this design, your model and mock up. There are some brilliant people on here, and I've learnt, and been inspired heaps, but I am really enjoying watching this thread. I reckon, judging by your preparation, this is going to be one fantastic build. Can't wait to see the sawdust fly

Cheers

Mock ups

Postby paperdoor » Thu Feb 18, 2010 1:27 am

The only problem with the little mock up - which is amazing :thumbsup:
Is that when you're home and every time you walk by the little mock up sitting there on the mantel, your going to have pack your bags, call off work, and hitch the car to the Tear in the garage and get out camping. :D
Although you could always just pull it into the driveway, pop the galley lid and have a BBQ- :twisted:

Hey, Craig! Glad too see this mock up lured you out of hiding and got you to post your first post! Welcome! Now scoot over to the newbies section and give us a proper introduction! :D
