Tom Geiger posted a topic in Model Trucks: Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light CommercialI built this one a long time ago! I had the photos out for a purple theme on another board. Well received there so I thought I’d share them here. AMT Dodge van.. originally was going to build a cube van. Then I looked at combining both ends to create a pickup cab. Then I created a stake bed to get experience working with bass wood. I kept the rear windows from the van doors but filled in the door line detail. Used kit tail lights too. I believe the paint was Pactra RC Colors with a clear coat. Viper wheels were originally put on temporarily but people liked it so they stayed. Important to anyone who wants to duplicate the cab.. the two roof areas do not mate well.. they are at different levels. The van roof may appear to be flat but it has a continuous curve. I had to add plastic inside the rear section since I sanded through the roof getting it all level. And here’s what was left of the van after the cuts. This section bummed around the model room and got used as a paint stand for years until I looked at it one day... And it became this! Never throw away old parts.. waste not, want not!
This is a "what if" or "phantom" build of a Caravan pickup (inspired by the A100) I started exactly 1 month ago. Not sure what the model name should be. El Caravano? Ramchero? I considered El Toro but its a Dodge Ram (and that's no bull!) El Ramo! No... Maybe El Carnero , Spanish for The Ram, sounds logical. Suggestions welcome. I am using the Revellogram Dodge Ram VTS pickup to complete the conversion, using the cab's back wall, bed, tailgate, taillights &bumper. The bed is actually to short for the Caravan so I graphed on the appropriate length from a 2nd VTS kit. I would have liked to the Caravan taillights but had to flatten the shape at the rear to accommodate a practical tailgate. I also pushed out the rear quarter panels from about the back edge of the wheel opening on back, which allowed for a full width box. (Box length is approx. 7 1/2 scale feet.) More later. Comments, suggestions welcome.
Hi I`ve wanted to do a "truefire" paintjob for a long time. Finally i desided to give it a shot. I see i have to do a little more on the right side to get more "flow" of the design Please let me know what you think and what i can do better next time
