Tom, those are beautiful.  I like your attention to detail on the window gaskets with chrome inserts on the passenger vans. Here's a mild custom.

Here's what I have in vans... the purple pickup above started out as a cube van project. Then I decided to create the pickup cab with the front and back of the van body.  What was left of the body is in this last shot.  It banged around the model room for at least 10 years as you see it. It was even used as a paint stand in my spray booth. Then one day I picked it up and started carving....

And wound up with this camper.  Got two models out of one old Dodge van kit.

Here's my Vantom Fantom whatever the latest release is by Round 2.  I had a laid out suspension built for the Dirty Donnie van but, it got stepped on.  So, I trimmed the rear of the floor pan and slid it under this because the kit suspension and pan looked like more work than I wanted to put into this one.  It still needs a little work.

I think we've all seen this in real life in one form or another...

thanks Tom that's what I try to achieve with these models.  Those little slices of life we all find familiar, sometimes of a past era, that could be forgotten. Someone once called the builds "Rockwell-esqe".

Here's some shots of AMT's Vantasy model that I built for this year's Round 2 contest. It had to be built with only kit parts, so the only thing that I got creative with was the handpainted graphics. The images are a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh and Robert Crumb.

Can I ask what you built this  from? I'm looking to do a Chevy Grumman Step Van and this looks similar, though I suspect it may be all scratch built.  It does look fantastic!

This is a replica of a van my daughter had in the 90's ... an '85 GMC. There's a loong WIP here.
