Years ago when I was a Park Ranger I built this 1” scale model of my Bounder 37’ Motorhome for my grandson.I built it heavy duty so he could ride on it and it was fully furnished with a flip top so he could play with the inside. This was my first large scale model.

Progressive pictures would have been wonderful – however this product looks impressive and possibly a fun build. I think modifications could have been nearly endless. Thanks for sharing.

This looks like you put a lot of effort into it and got a wonderful result. Great gift for a grandchild.

Thanks for your positive responses! I actually built this 6 years ago and only had the two pictures of the project. The interior furniture was all done in cedar. Yes, I could have done so much more detail work in the project but it was kept simple because my grandson was only 2 years old when I made it for him so it needed to be tough and simple. I have many more projects that I will post soon.
