    There is no model kit of a 1971 - 1978 long wheel base Ford Transit MK1 (facelift) in 1/25 or 1/24. The only possiblity is to modifiy the short wheel base ESCI Ford Transit Mk2. You have to modify the front facsia , grill, headlight, dashboard, taillights, bumper, double rear wheels, new rear fender flares and stretch body. The main problem of this modification is the front it looks compely different to the Mk1. If you look at the attached picture you can see the differences between the blue Mk1 and the gray Mk 2. The blue one is mine  and from 1969.
    If tried to modify the Esci kit and I failed hopefully you will do it better.

    But since 2015 you'll can see the new Ford Transit as a replacement of the Econoline or E-Series  in the States or Canada. The poor thing about is there will no V8 or V10 in a Transit. The engine bay is to small. But you'll get in the States a Transit (see picture below) with a twin-turbocharged 3.5l V6 with 310HP and 600Nm torque low roof short wheelbase. We here in Europe will only get diesel engines . During this test drive on Ford Lommel Proving Ground I only saw the bends or corners through the side window. It was amazing. Check out this video of this Ford Transit at Nürburgring

    What about something simple based on a '41 Plymouth chassis. Powell Stationwagon or Powell Pickup
    Or A Davis Divan Threewheeler

  15. carsntrucks4you added a post in a topic WARNING! Cavalier Australian resin kits!   

    Yes those tires are a night mare as long as you have something that looks like a tire in the kit. I have all of them an in 5 of these kits the tires is black sticky fluid. I also have in somekits like the Torana LX5000 resin tires. Either some of the previous owners of this kit changed them with resin ones or like in the newer ADR Distribution kits there are where delivery with resin tires.

    I also find out on the 3 that I had build the the tires look like a tike but they stick to the under ground.
