I want to build one or more (different) lightweight caravans to place behind my collection of miniature 2cv's. Because I can't find pre-fabricated model caravans (what's the right word for this?) I want to scratch-build them. Offcourse I need information for this, so is there anyone who can find some blueprints of the following caravans for me?
A Sleeper (http://efens.nl/2cv/EN/archief/042003/2003_04_sleeper.htm)
http://efens.nl/2cv/EN/archieffoto/2003/200304/sleep1.jpg
and/or a Eis Picolo or Aliette (http://www.trikes.freeserve.co.uk/irom/page14.htm) (propably these two are exactly the same)
http://www.trikes.freeserve.co.uk/irom/ailette3.jpg
and/or a Dübener Ei (http://www.taunuskaefer.de/_index.html?/_ei.htm) (Also called 'Dubener Ei' or 'Duebener Ei')
http://www.taunuskaefer.de/images/duebener-ei/001.640.jpg
and/or a Eriba Puck Export from 1965 (http://www.oldiecaravan.de/Hersteller_A_-_Z/Eriba/Puck_Export/body_puck_export.html)

and/or a caravan witch I dont know yet (who knows what kind of caravan this is so I can search better)

Sorry if the pictures are messing up the lay-out, I really don't know how to resize them without having to put them on private webspace (witch I don't have)

I already searched the internet, but I couldn't find enoug info. Can somebody help me? By the way, I am especially looking for the correct size of the wheels (size of the wheel hub and size of the tyre) of the 'Dübener Ei'. If you know more/different caravans wich can be towed by a 2cv (maximum weight 400 kilo's, including bagage), please let me know!

By the way, yesterday I heard that you can't buy seperate wheels anymore becouse they were produced in eastern europe, behind the 'Iron Curtain'. As the 'Iron Curtain' went to the scrapyard so to say ( ;) ) the production of model-car wheels witch you can buy seperately is stopped. Is this story true ? Do I really need to buy a complete model car just for the weels if I need them ?

Sorry if the pictures are messing up the lay out, I don't know how to resize them without having to put them on some private webspace (witch I don't have).

Ah, I see. I hope it will be on Dutch TV once.

By the way, I am still looking for wheels to put under my caravan. Is there anyone out there who knows where I can buy them in the Netherlands ?
