    This summer me and my family went on a holiday trip,:wave:
    For a week we rented a circuswagon on a campsite, there where about ten of them, all between 40 and 90 years old.
    The Dutch summers can be wet:twisted: (Holland is a nice country, but they should put a roof over it)
    But I brought something to keep me bussy

    I just brought one X-acto knife and a pair of scissors, so it looks a bit rough..

    We (me and my daughter) because she "pimped" it with the name of the campsite gave the model to the manager, who was very pleased, it's on his desk..

    Very nice job. Did you buy it at the campsite, or somewhere else? It would be a good item to sell there for a souvenir.

    Rough? I wish my models looked that rough. Mine look like I built them with my feet compared to yours. Sounds like a great vacation and vacation spot. Cheers!
