This is a half scale of the Guildcraft Classic Winnebago with Trailer and StarFleet X-Wing P5100 & Peterbilt 5000 Transport. I have been making half size of the toys I have already made because I am literally running out of shelf space.

These half scale project are a little more difficult then their big brothers because, of course, the are littler and when drilling hole for head and tail lights and such in the end of the blank wood stock has to be straight up and down. But I like a challenge. I have made six so far.

So, there you have it. First the Winnie and then the X-Wing.

Thanks for lookin,
A Mini Winnie

Did you down size on computer/printer or reduce copied plan on printer that reduce it.  Did you reduce to 50% ?  What is the total length of the small unit.  Great job!  You guys are really doing great job painting.  Still not sure if I can paint toys and sell them at shows for  a price that will justify the time and expense.  How much difference do you think it makes in purchability and or price between painted and natural oiled?  Appreciate any comments,

Great job on both projects! I also like the idea of downsizing them a bit.

Walker 47,

a very good idea. And looking very nice.


PaPa Jack,

I have no idea about the price you should (or could) ask. I was on a fair in my (little) town which attracts lots of people from around and I sold nothing! Parents and kids weren't even interested nor did they look at the toys.

The hype in the Netherlands at this moment is insect hotels. 

Natuurmonumenten Insectenhuis Zeshoek - Nestkast - Medium

As for (a) price, related to invested time and the cost of finish, I personally think that you never get even with or for that. The fun of making the toys is 'part of the game', i.e. for me it is.

Thanks all for all the kind words.

PaPa Jack, I do not sell them I just keep them on a shelf. I too, tried to sell some of my stuff but got on takers. I tried it twice with no results. Too much hassle, so I do them for my own entertainment. As far as down sizing I just go into the print button in the PDF and chose the Custom Scale button and change it to 50%. Everything comes out at half size.

The length of the X-wing Transport is 11-1/4 inches long and 2-7/8 inches wide and 3 inches high.

Peter V, What in the heck is insect hotels?? They check in but don't check out?

Any  way thanks.
