We have made the chassis and the body of both VW camper vans!
To measure the length of both of the vehicles, we put the wooden wheels flat against the table and chose a suitable distance for the size of the vehicles. We then used a handsaw to prepare the wood for the frame and the chassis. We also used a handsaw to saw the dowel wood for the axles and drive wheels.
We then had help from Mr Dougill to help us glue all of the pieces together. We used a hot glue gun for this to make the vehicles secure.
