I built an Erie steamshovel, and a dump truck (loosely based on a Dodge)-

I scratch built a 1962 Shasta camper... Then I had to add some details. They're cooking up a batch of moonshine on the still, and keeping warm by the fire.

I have been working on a few other items, too- This is a 1948 Indian Chief-
