Absolutely yes. Post as often with as many photos as you wish. We all treasure these types of posts and learn a ton from them. The forum has unlimited storage for photos. And please post the photos the original file size from the camera. The forum software will automatically make photos fit the post. That way when we click on the photo we can see it pop up on our screens for a full-size look.

Hello Luitjes,

majority rules [wink]

John the first pictures are still downsized via infranView. I am used to do that because I sometimes put some of my other hobby on Modelbouwforum.nl, where it is obligated to  DSC06766.jpg  DSC06767.jpg   
downsized them.

I sometimes cut out the drawing (plan), often the bigger parts, and take the contours onto the piece of wood. Mostly, I put the measurements form the plan onto the wood. Since I know that the scale is 1:1 (inches) I print those correct now so I have no longer problems with inches and metric.
013.jpg  014.jpg 
016.jpg  My scrollsaw is not that accurate so I stay well within the lines. 
  I bought myself an oscilating sander to overcome a lot of sanding in odd corners, which makes it a bit easier.


I put the two half together and then sanded the openings, (except for the door), so the windows are the same. Forgot to make a picture of it. 018.jpg  019.jpg  020.jpg  DSC06739.jpg   I am happy with the results.
    006.jpg  017.jpg  and than the glueing started ... DSC06740.jpg 

DSC06741.jpg  DSC06742.jpg  DSC06743.jpg  DSC06744.jpg  DSC06745.jpg  DSC06746.jpg  DSC06747.jpg  DSC06748.jpg  I hope the grain(?) of those sidepanels, being both in the same direction,      will not go wrong, meaning that the Winnebago is going to become           deformed. 

I used the pieces of wood of the wheelhouses (is that the word, thanks to Google translate?) for the axle-connextion pieces. Clamped them together, and with help of my discssander, gave them a better shape.

DSC06749.jpg  Measuring ......  DSC06750.jpg  divided by 2 ........ DSC06751.jpg  ans start drilling  the hole. I use such a drill, I can use one of my centredrills (from the metal) but those are doing great also. DSC06752.jpg  DSC06753.jpg  DSC06754.jpg  Nice round holes but stangely, the last one is still (as it seems) a little offset. MY dirll is 90% and the plateau is absolutely horizontal. So how this can occur, I don't know.

IIf somebody knows .... pse explain.DSC06755.jpg  I think in this case it is not that bad because the holes are all correct located (distance)  regarding the floor of the Winnebago, so the wheels must be all correct. The only thing is the placing and gluing onto the floor. I have to lign them up with the wheelhouses.

If someone has a usefull tip, feel ree to share pse.

After that, I started with the frontpieces. I have an Proxxon tablesaw and for the big(ger) pieces I remove the guidefence 

DSC06756.jpg  For angles, I mostly eyeball those and then put the blade into the correct position. I eyeball that also, because the degree-indicator says different then the discribed angles on the drawing. DSC06757.jpg  DSC06758.jpg  DSC06759.jpg  DSC06760.jpg  I therfore have to check via the backside of the to be cut piece.DSC06761.jpg  DSC06762.jpg  The 'eybrows' needed an angle of 7 degrees, which I didn't know how to make with my proxxon so I sanded those on my sander. Satisfied with the result.DSC06763.jpg  DSC06764.jpg  DSC06765.jpg  Glueing the pieces in place and let them dry. I use pattex white woodglue, seen on the little bottle. I fill that bottle from a bigger one (to be seen at earlier pictures [smile]) because the little one is more handy.


To be continued .......

This is a great set of photos. And thanks for posting. Your photos are lessons on toymaking in and of themselves. We are excited to see this project unfold.

Tell us about the brass engine-like models in the post. Are you also a machinist? The pieces are really cool.

Agree 100% with the comments above. A WIP with plenty of photos is always interesting and we can all learn a lot -just seeing how someone else has gone about the "problem" of some particular part is always instructive, even if the part concerned is different to what the viewer is making. And one can always ask questions if something's not clear.

The only downside I see is that preparing such posts always takes quite a long time, though I must say that the software on this Forum is more advanced that that on another Forum I belong to - e.g. John's point above about not needing to compress/re-size photos - MUCH different on the other Forum I use where you can't post any photo that's bigger than 256K without re-sizing it first!

Hello Luitjes,

the brass thing (it is tongue >> google translate from the Dutch 'messing') is  Stirling Engine. https://www.google.com/search?q=stirling+principe&rlz=1C1KMZB_enNL564NL569&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=XRXEajBvPoKWkM%253A%252C3ENjcLCRGsMUYM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kTLermw3gPhEyjrLAO1nE9QOcFowQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi0n_HjnrTiAhWSbFAKHbw4BC0Q9QEwBHoECAgQCA#imgrc=XRXEajBvPoKWkM:
It runs only on a waxinelichtje, so there is not much friction.

The second engine is a so-called 'Ringbom'. 
https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-642-82526-2_5
It operates without a connection between the flying wheel (cranckshaft) and the piston. With the Stirling engine, you can - a little - regulate the speed by turning the cranckshaft less then 90 degrees

I am not a machinist, I started with a lathe (Myford) because I wanted to learn to work more within 10th of a mm. 

To be honest, I find wood more to my liking because it is easier to work with (and I don't have all the metal-equipment such as a cutter.

BTW, in daily life I am a lawyer, mainly fior waht we call Midden- en Kleinbedrijf i.e. advising small businesses or enterprises.

Now some pictures of the build of the Winnebago.

The old maxim "A picture is worth a thousand words" definitely applies here. This is a quality set and that is informative and instructional. I hope to be as good at it as this some day.

Hello Luitjes,

worked on the Winnebago.
First the trailer. I had some hinges left from RC-stuff so I thought of those to use.
First I made some grooves with my router.

Than I glued the hinges with 2K glue mixed with sawdust. it is some old 2K therefore it got a dark colour. After being painted, nobody sees that.

To pervent that the lid is glued to the traile, iI put some bakingpaper between it.

In the last three pictures, the fit and the lifting can be seen. I am pleased with it.

Luitjes,

after the hinges in the trailer, I decided to use those also for the Winnebago itself.

Made a drawing and a test/piece.

After that, I got some courage to drill into the Winnebago ....
satisfied with the results ... the hinges are all in line...
