Stop me anytime you reckon we've been over this before.

Brooklin Models make a 1947 Wesley Slumbercoach in their 1:43 range:

which is a perfect match for their 1946 Mercury Sportsman convertible:

though of course Bev will prefer their 1952 Shasta Airflyte:

whereas I think Gage will prefer their spedboat that looks like it's stolen some ideas from that 1957 BellBoy Bikini:

though personally I'm very taken with their stunning 1956 Willerby Vogue fiberglass caravan:

If you're tempted, the US agent is Brasilia Press, IN.

Those are really nice Andrew... I just bought the 1947 Wesley Slumbercoach...

But I really like the looks of the 1956 Willerby Vogue fiberglass caravan. I wonder if that design can be modified to be built in someone's garage... the scale might have to be modified too!

Mike...
The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...
