    Today at work - FORD GT
    Today I was able to have a look on Ford's new GT. That car looks awesome and the sound is a bit strange. I'm missing 2 cylinders

    There were some problems with centering of the rear wheels in rear fender. I'm not sure if this problem comes from the fenders or the fact that I modified the rear spring. An other issue is the area between door and roof there is a cab of about 1 mm. Otherwise the parts from Best Model Car Parts have a good fit.

    1930 Ford Model A Closed Cab Pickup
    Here some pictures of my '30 Ford Model A Closed Cab pickup. I used Best Model Car Parts  conversion kit together with a '30 Model A Sedan. Strombergs from Model Car Garage, with scoops from Replicas Miniatures. Headlights, beauty rings and baby moon caps are from Parts by Park. The exhaust is made out of solder wire and aluminium tubing.

    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

    Or A Davis Divan Threewheeler
