Talk about a blast from the past. I did that kit back around the late ‘70s. Well done. :shoutout: :shoutout: :shoutout:

Thanks. I custom mixed all my paints except for the black. That was off the shelf.

Very cool. Does it have a sign that tells you what to do if the van is rocking?

MAN is that nice!

That is about the nicest in scale van I have ever seen, I'm not kidding even a little bit. Very convincing, and in the right setting it could pass for 1:1.

Very impressive.
Now that we know that.... What have we learned?...
