I Can't Keep a Secret

Well, I finally shared with PeeWee that I was building a scale model of his famous African caravan  scout truck for him. I just couldn't hold it any longer. Still some finishing touches to do and figure out what type of display case to make for it. The shell is made from aluminum flashing and the 'rivets' are actual brass brads. I modeled it from two or three photos that PeeWee had posted.

The story on the difference in wording on the big red and white banners on the side was that Wally was told the use of the word "Biblelands' may not go over so well once the caravan gets to northern Africa so he had a sign painter change it to 'Near East' somewhere down south probably near Johannesburg.

I'll post more pictures when it gets done.
