Modelhaus 1958 Shasta Airflyte "canned ham" trailer
Posted by Dale Gribble on Sunday, July 15, 2018 8:38 PM

Another oddball from the collection ... This is a real Modelhaus kit , There's some guy selling poor quality repops on ebay, his don't have all the chrome parts ....

 

This will end up part of a diorama .... I just got home today from a lake trip , lots of good ideas and info from a real canned ham that was on site ...

 

 

 

 

"rare" kit? no such thing!

build it, dont let it sit on the shelf.....

you cant take it with you, hearses dont have luggage racks......

Cool. Lots of interesting possibilities with that kit.

Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Would love to find one of these. Our first camper was a Shasta 13'. I'll be subscribed to this one.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

once I make a few more key decesions on the diorama and find a suitable pull car in the collection , this will hit the ground running !

OH! You gotta go with something sixties. Dad pulled ours with a Chrysler New Yorker. (1968? Maybe?)

Just found out through feebay, these are available as a 24th scale diecast. I'm thinking about nabbing one up.

Here's the car I thought I wanted to use on the diorama , but when I set them together , the scale seems "off" .... What do you think ?

Tough call. I mean it looks good, but the last time I saw our Shasta I was five. So my reference of scale would be WAYYYYY off. ;)

Did a little scratchbuilding on the propane tank . Made a valve , added some random safety and branding labels from my stash .... I'll use a modified welding regulator and some hose to hook it all up when it's done ...

Nice tanks! Ours had the same, lower body paint instead of the band midway, but ours was the more common canary yellow. Makes me want to go camping.

It's like being homeless, but in the woods. Sure, there's a lot less people fighting for the good sleeping spots but then again, you won't get your face ripped off by a badger downtown.

Will the one from the Tom Daniel kit work? I can't remember if it has a stock unit or not.

Looking at mine now. It's just a body width strip of red plastic. Any form of "bumper" that existed was blended into the body.

Question ? Mr Gribble !

 Isn't the trailer 1/25 scale ? Then the car looks like a Re-pop of the Tom Daniel kit from Monogram .That was 1/24 wasn't it ? Other than that are you gonna detail the inside and if no , Why Not ? Old Car Guy
