If so, did you buy the mobile homes or make them yourself (scratch-built, using real floorplans, etc.)?

Did you use the interior of the trailers for gaming, or just kept them closed up?

Did you use it to game an Alien Invasion, Zombie Infestation, Drug Bust or what?

Any pics and/or other suggestions you feel like sharing?

Thanks,

Dan

I'm sure someone does.

Check the local RR Hobby Shop, and look in their HO scale catalog for these.

My guess is they'll have pretty much everything you'll need.

Look online you can find tons of HO scale mobile homes on railroad mdel sites. They range from cheap box looking affairs up to delux models.

Well, the 28mm version gets used for all the above, and gang fights.

As mentioned, there are a TON of HO scale trailers out there, some at darned good prices. In 15mm I wouldn't worry about interiors, but that is just me.

Like Jake I'm working on one in 28mm and it will be used in all of the above and more in sure.

QUESTION:

Does anyone make and sell pdfs for printing HO scale mobile homes and trailers on paper/card?

These are the only examples I could find:

I was hoping to find a few of the old rounded travel trailer types.

You can find HO trailer homes on Ebay and Amazon. Amazon sells them at a decent price about the same as Ebay accept you don't have to go thorugh the bidding process.

Man that airstream would be cool with extreme modelling.

Does anyone know what type of trailer is the one pictured here?

You can see the other side of Nestor's trailer here, on the right side of the picture:

And is Nestor's trailer the same type of unit as these two in the background?

I think this angle shows 3 (green, silver and white) instead of just the two (not including the red mobile home):

Glad I found this thread. I recently bought "It Came from Beyond the Still" and wondered if I could find some 1/100 or 1/72 scale mobile homes. I found:

hobbylinc.com/htm/cty/cty113.htm?source=froogle

and

compare.ebay.com/like/360442833985?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&_lwgsi=y&cbt=y

for a start.

Ground Zero Games does some figures which could be used for hoes, but I'm not sure if they're 15mm or not…

Macunaima the figs at that GZG link are 25mm figures so they're a bit big for 15mm.

Man, I wish I had the money to bid on this lot:

auction

Makes me cry.
