Seeing that Revell Custom van on the other thread made me think of this:tup:
As a teen in the late 70s early 80s i remember going into hobby/model shops in Hadleigh,Lea and Southend and seeing loads of great cool custom vans on the shelfs.MPC seamed to be the main player

Heres some ive seen on US e-bay this week...

OOh, ooh, I'm sure I built the 'Off Road' van when I was a teenager. I must stop looking at these threads I keep getting strange ideas about getting the paint and glue out again.

cant believe i missed the black gold chevy van ive been looking for one for ages also the vanpire van :sniff::sniff:
There was a Vanpire Chevy Van on ebay not so long back but it did really silly money. I'm keeping my eyes out though. It was one of my favorite models when I was a kid. :)

Missed that one :sniff:
Its only the van/ trailer/ race cars in cool models that have led me astray. Got too many to build already, but already got a trailer & race car . . . . . .:shake:
Sorry about that, just noticed your request for one in another thread:shake: As for plans, I also build trucks and have the AMT LaFrance pumper to build with thoughts of a diorama with lots of flashing lights......:D
