Here is where I'm at... Sorry I'm a little ahead of the competition Doc, I'm just buildin' what feels right... You guys are a great inspiration for me to keep it going... I might enter something else in the comp anyway... I'm full of crazy ideas!

Van 5 is the Power Plant I'm workin' on.
Van 8 is what happens when you set it a little to close to the fireplace to dry faster...Melted the roof a little. More body work for me!
Van 11 is the frame I built. still working on the front section. I only had the shell of the van, nothing else. I have to scratch build the floors, frame, everything needed... No curb sides for me : ) The Kenworth bunk is from the same scale.

Hope you enjoy the 2 Mock-ups I put in... Notice the truck box on the roof... Hey, ya got put stuff somewhere! I'm going have 2 huge fuel tanks in the back as well.

Enjoy, and Thanks for checkin' it out guys...

''van is not what i see but an cool 5 wheel race car hauler,, :wub:


I kind of see "transforms into a giant robot" :D

Anyway, I love the combination of shapes. I've never seen anything like this, and would love to watch it turn into a porn star hauler lol. This is the kind of vehicle for which oversized metalflake was made. Paint it like a bass boat ;)

Gotta be shiny, maybe with some crazy graphics from the Hippie Hemi or Dirty Donnie van.

Interesting idea, this first thing that came to mind when I saw it was this:

Anthony, at the pace you are building, you can probably contribute several TZH vehicles to the caravan! Keep up the great work. Can't wait to see it in paint.

Sam, that is a cool van you dug up!

Who ever had the deep pockets to do this in the real world would make it a show stopper with shiny paint and nice graphics and a powerful motor, maybe even a trailer with a matching paint hot rod on the back. Just my 3 cents, inflation you know. Patrick

Here is an update, that I also posted in the Apocolipse built as well... I had to pack everything up and move recently, so I'm just getting back to the build now. It is going to be a shinny Apoco-build...with a dirty custom look...

Enjoy guys...
