I'm starting with a Classic Metal Works International. I used super glue debonder to get one of the wheels off and it blistered the paint, fogged the glass and screwed up some of the plastic. So, I ended up repainting the truck. I wasn't planning on that. Since I stripped all the paint off I removed the running lights and blinkers. I've started the house section.
The opening on the side is for a window. The door will be on the back. The book was published in 1979. I guess there were a bunch of this around in the 60's and 70's. From what I've come up with searching the internet there are still quite a few around. I did find a web site that showed one under construction that is only about 3 miles from my house. This is a fun project. I'm thinking about building 2 or 3 more and maybe a school bus conversion.
