Indeed we do.  Reminded me of a Barbie Winnebago my sister's friend had.  Looking forward to see it emerge!

First time that I've seen this project and it is AMAZING!  You are doing an awesome job of scratch building.

Making the framework for the dog house ,which in this case is abnormally long due to the length of the engine and radiator.

Put the plastic plates on and the Dog house engine cover is quite large but perfect for a table or perhaps stationary seating while the Winnebago is parked;.

I certainly did not expect how difficult it was to fabricate the sink out of a flat piece of aluminum.Still somewhat crude but I will take steps to improve the framework of the sink. sheesh!never made a scale sink before but wow!/crazy!
