    And once again you can thank me for this. Two years ago I paid a pretty penny for this on eBay just to get the SR tonneau cover. 

    Come to think of it, I probably didn't pay much if any more than the MSRP of the new kit by the time it actually becomes available....:unsure:



    I hope you bought a mpc 71 dodge van too

    I don't build the style of models that most of Ed's parts are for, but I have his AMT '53 Ford pickup interior "enhancement" parts and they are amazing! I wish I had a few extra hands so I could give him more than two thumbs up!


    And now I just noticed that I said pretty much the same thing last October, LOL. It still holds true!


    I'd like to get one of those too, but I'd have to find the rest of the kit first haha

    On my list I have plan to make conversions to more commercial style fronts for GMC and Chevy. I personally need 1980 GMC Vandura with round headlights for example. If you want anything in particular, shoot me an email and I will add it to my list. Once I fully retire (less than 2 years) I will be pounding out new stuff a with lot more frequency.

    Those would need a new dash and doghouse too but I'm excited to see what you come up with

    I do ship to Hawaii...it says "My USA flat rate shipping is $17 with tracking up to a max weight of 0.19 kg (including Hawaii)." :)

    Whoops, sorry about that. I got too excited and I'm always used to having hawaii excluded. Will definitely order sometime, hope you come out with more van stuff, chevy van update parts maybe?

    Could be. But, I would think it would've been called that instead of a customizing kit. I just hope it isn't some George Barris abomination. I'm hoping you're right!

    It wouldve been cool, but highly unlikely, to be a Rapid Transit type custom

    I was wondering the same thing. Never understood why they removed the ribs (which were accurate) to recreate the original issue (which weren't). I hope someday the original A-Team van can come back, I really liked that version of the van. 

    BTW, is your van going to be an ice cream truck? I'd like to see more of that one. Are you doing a WIP thread?

    Its similar to an ice cream truck, in hawaii they're called manapua vans and they sell noodles, Asian snacks and candy. I patterned mine after the amt drag van kit

  7. I was wondering, are the prices of the A Team van crazy because the tooling was irreparably backdated when the Dirty Donny version came out? I built this van from the recent rescue van and you can see the roof rib marks from the A team van ( I reused the roof skin to make the tall top)

    Glad to see the lightbars finally coming out and I can see a few ideas for the Escalade.



    Adding a roof to the back, I'd like to see someone convert one into a TRUE Escalade ESV.

    Might have to be me.

    Oh and so no one cries, here is the consumer warning that should be on the  Corvette box!



    I just wish they'd fix the headlights on the 62 corvette
