Hi, I finally finished my very first build, the Winnebago camper , I built it for my grandson's birthday, I went through a massive learning curve and must admit I lost heart with it at times, but having told my daughter I was building it for him I had to see it through, by the end I was really doubting myself as to its being good enough. However to see him take it out of the box and just start playing with it was a great feeling.Hope you like it. Cheers Stuart

Great build, I haven't done this build but I can sure appreciate the time involved to complete such a nice look as this.

Looks great from here. Always keep in mind that what you see as serious flaws may not be noticed by most people.

Very clean and nicely done!  How did you apply the graphic on the back?

Well for your first build I'd say you did brilliantly! Well done.

When I did mine I designed a dining booth to replace the big round table and the couch. If you want the plans go   here   and just download them.

As far as your Tottenham rugby bedspread I've got to say that is really nice. I support Tottenham football. We get English Premier League here in the states.

Hi, The graphics were produced on a vinyl cutting machine that my wife has for her business, one is a Brother Scan n Cut and the other is a Silhouette very handy bit of kit. Cheers Stuart

Hi Team dan UK.

I agree with the above, for a 1st go your Winne looks great, very well done Sir!

Now that you've "struggled" through the whole process of what looks to me like a quite complicated build (I have the plans but haven't built it yet) has the bug now bitten and will you be making more toys?
