Hmmm, Escape... Similar shape to the Trillium, 17' long. That would really be a nice addition. Scroll to the bottom of the following page for some pics:

Boy Bruce, you started something here... I really appreciate this idea!! Alone in this forum you will be able to sell quite some models! Are you sure it is not going to be too much work..??

Bruce:

Kevin did not mention that we have more than 1 of the Uhaul molded toys that were made for advertising the trailers. They are some kind of molded material like plastic and appear to be the 16' VT.

Will one be able to gain access to the inside easily? I'd buy a 16' Scamp one if I could pop it open and make it exactly like mine inside. The interior stuff I could do and would love doing it - the making of the exterior, not so much! I've been contemplating carving one out of wood just for kicks but I'd really like to do the inside up. This sounds great.

I'll sit down this week and figure the right lengths and widths for each..and start making a plug for the uhaul 13 mold....It's harder to do than the scamp or burro because of the projected windows front and rear and the side depressions ...but certainly doable.
Scamps, burros, bolers and trills should all be a bit easier to do ....maybe.
I'll only be asking what it costs to make one and not looking to make extra off them. There are some things that can be done with them though if you have one...like...go after doll house or toy furniture and fixtures to do the inside...light them.......paint a scheme to stare at then change ..drag em around behind a rc car or truck..LOL....there are many 18th scale cars and trucks diecast ive looked at and I think thats the scale most doable actually..search diecast cars and trucks and see if they have yours or something close(they dont have my Ranchero but they have the car like it I could hack up)..theres alot of diorama accy's for them also..people garages tools etc........or you could just............look at it
I'm thinking mailbox?

Very cool idea! I would be interested in a 13ft Boler.

And if you want to do the really obscure do a Bigfoot 5th wheel!

well....they'll be hollow and two halves , soyes before joining you could add interior..I was saying earlier that doll house supplies might do or just toy stuff..I'm almost through with the uhaul rough shaping and have to add the flat areas to the roof and sides for the tail lights and side stripe area...the uhaul is actually the hardest to do I think because of these and the front and rear window area.....the rest look easier ....we'll see.
and yes I've seen the uhaul vt toy before...it's around 1/25th scale .......I'm going with 1/18th because of the many available die cast trucks and cars you can buy . ....Bruce

We have a car and trailer salt and pepper shakers. Whoever made them (china?) obviously had never seen a trailer, but they are still neat to have. We got them at the Tillamook cheese factory in Oregon.

I've made molds before for RC model airplanes with a friend..it's a bit time consuming yes..but definately doable..I'm surprised more at how many people are interested.I didnt think many would be...and actually once you have a mold ready it's not too hard to layup one...some of the materials are a bit pricy but these things are small..........Bruce

I'd love to see the process, through pictures that you're using for this entire process. Hope you're documenting and will share with us Perhaps others would like to do similar stuff, like fix broken items on a trailer that's no longer available for replacement.
