Jonathan,  This is coming out real nice!  I never saw one of these kits built with the extension added to the rear.  

 

How many Vantom/Phantom kits did you use to build this?

Has anyone compared the AMT 'Phantom' to one of the MPC Ford Econoline vans(Sunrunner, Juke Box...)?

 

The bodies looks very similar.  I have an old glue bomb MPC Sunrunner that's falling apart but don't have a Phantom for comparison.

Bob,  I'm keeping it.  It's a kit I built back when I was a kid and want to tear it down and re-build it.

Thanks. Van was sectioned and is mid engined but more of a slammer than a detailed build. I kind of lost interest half way throught the build.

Tom,

 

Your vans are incredible!  I remember you posted the green Ford Econoline in another thread a while ago.

 

Every last detail down to the spare tire in the back of the Chevy is spot on.  I had to go back and look at the pictures a few times to make sure they were models.  

 

BTW, what paint/color(s) did you use on the green Ford Econoline?

 

Mike. 

 

Thank you. the Greens were Dupli-Color Hampstead Green, and Dark Jade Green.

Did you mean, if they are different? I think, the mpc (for example the Off Road Van) is the same like the amt Vantom, chuckoo nest, disco van, hyper hut, etc.

Dominik,  I was referring to the bodies of the MPC and AMT vans, how they look side by side.  Which one is more accurate...

 

I have to pick up an AMT Phantom one of these days and compare it to my Sunnrunner MPC van.

They're different kits.

 

Differences in the bodies are a few comparing the MPC Sorcerer van to the Vanton/Phantom.

 

MPC:

Has larger Econoline badges on sides

better detailed/nicer door handles

separate side door

Different fuel filler location to Phantom

Different indicators

 

There's several other differences to and the more you looked the more you'd find I think, the Sorcerer also runs funny shaped side windows.

 

Looking at the two side by side I think the MPC body is nicer, seems to be crisper, nicer details and separate side door is a nice feature.

 

Cheers Rob
