Stumbled across these pics while doing the W W W search thing . Does anyone have or know of any drawings or profiles of this design ? I believe its an ALL ALLOY unit and I'm keen to learn more .

Cheers

Shrapnel...check with Grant Whipp on here, he has profile drawings. I have a full size template if you cannot reach Grant. And FYI...it is a '47 or a '48, and a Sportsmaster model. Kit did not make teardrop campers in '52.

Cheers for that . Usual story i guess , , , , somewhere on the WWW it said it was/is a 52 , so it must be , , , Yeah Right ! ;)
But seriously , thanks for putting me right . The other part of the info with the pic's I found , was that is an All Alloy teardrop . Is this true ? and is there info on how they were put together around also ? Getting some profile info would be great , I really like the style of this one , especially the little kick-up at the back where the underside meets the hatch.

Right , Time to track down Grant Whipp .

The early Kits were aluminum sheet over plywood, so only the skins are alloy. The frame is steel.
