Welcome to the fun.

After you have made 5 posts you can post pictures in an album for all of us to share in your fun. We are eye-candy-aholics, in case you're wondering. It is also helpful to take lots of pictures just as a record of how you built it and what things worked and didn't work so well.  The travel trailer looks like fun. Will it be a theme of some particular trip you are planning in the future or already went on?

I have a retro/vintage theme planned pulling inspiration from the vintage campers and travel trailers I love in full scale. I have been last looking at green paints and fabrics to set the tone and color scheme.

Welcome to the little family, Gretchen.  Many, many  years ago we lived briefly in Coshocton, OH.  After the winter of 1978 I made a deal with God that if He moved us back to FL I'd never, ever complain about the heat, and the following summer we were in Jacksonville, FL.

Welcome Gretchen!  After 50 posts, you can start a blog.  That really helps me to keep track of everything and share the successes and whoopsies with everyone else!

Sounds like a great way to gauge my work and the progress along the way. Sometimes we get so caught up in what is in front of us, we forget the process that has gotten us where we are and the actual progress made.

      Help! I started my first dollhouse and FINALLY got to a finishing point after about a year and a half. There are still a few minor things that need done but it’s finished enough for now (I needed to finish it by Xmas for my daughter). I have made dozens of little 1:24 models in the past and am a little knowledgable in electrical (aircraft electrician over a decade ago) but have since become rusty in the topic. I opted to install 6, small LED lights into the dollhouse, connected by a series of 9v batteries. Since my other smaller models have included similar setups with the LEDs and batteries, I didn’t think this would be an impossible task. I have ordered 9V lights and hardwired them into the house, connecting them in series to 6, 9v battery housing and a switch. It had seemed a bit of overkill to me, since the smaller models often used a single AA battery for often up to 4-5 bright lights. Except, it was very dim (which I don’t mind too much, as it’s more for effect anyway) and lasted maybe 30 minutes before dying. I’m lost now on what to do. I would have to completely cut into the house and moulding to replace the wiring. Thoughts? Did I completely mess this up? Help!! I will try to post pictures of the setup.

      Next on the list was the screen door. I wasn't going to have one but every photo I came across showed one. Okay. The challenge came to finding scale screen material. Brae had shared what she used for her screen door but I could not find it locally. I hunted everywhere. Luckily at Michaels the associate showed me Tulle. It looked good to me!  I made two frames and sandwiched the Tulle between them. Then painted aluminum. It didn't turn out half bad.

      Here I have them lit. I really like how they look. I have two amber lights for the front markers. I can finally check these off my to do list!

      The next order of business to come up with some clearance lights. Using 1/4" styrene  tube I cut some small sections and profiled them to the contour of the curving roof line, drilled holes for the led's and epoxied them in place.

      Here is the final result after airbrushing the frames with Tester's Model Master Aluminum paint.
