 I want to follow this one, I have a van to build sometime. Don't know how I missed this one...Keep up the good work...

 

It's really not too hard to build Carl. You glue on a couple parts, paint a few things, use a little putty. But there is one important thing that you have to do...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You have to sing "Disco Duck" during assembly... :lol:

 

Good luck building yours. I'd like to see the progress of it when you start it!

 Remember the song and old Rick Dees well. I have some 70's music but not Disco Duck. There was a bunch of 70's songs they wrote while on pot. Thanks for the good laugh...

I know you meant it in a good way James! I was just kidding ya.

 

I gotta drive 40 miles one way Rob, just to get some paint, but the build is worth it. I'll probably go today or tomorrow to get it... Thanks!

Re-doing some bodywork on this. Some spots of putty shrank, so I'm touching them up. Got the paint I've been looking for, for it, and did some tests to make sure it's compatible. I'll have an update soon!

Here's an update on the van build. I'm at the final bodywork stage, sand, putty, primer, sand, putty, primer... Just touching up the little spots that need work, and smoothing them out. Here's some pictures:

I have been wanting to build a replica of my mid 70s Dodge factory custom van I once owned for years....just have to find one and a bunch of the exterior and interior goodies then.  Seeing this makes the fire even hotter to build it.

Thanks James! I came up with an idea for making the fireplace bricks more realistic. I spread some red bondo putty on the plastic bricks, then used a hobby scraper to clean out the spaces between the bricks. The color and texture were perfect...

I can't wait to see that Mark! If I had a Dodge van I'd send it to you. If I come across one it's yours. Thanks for the compliment!!!
