SteveFL Posted April 19, 2015 Share Posted April 19, 2015 I've been having so much fun building vans, I dusted off my old Monogram Vanpire that I've had in storage. I couldn't resist since I've always thought the Vanpire decals were cool & a bit frightening as a kid. To be sure, I sprayed them with Testors Decal sealer and they settled down like a charm. I had fun with this build. I cut out the moon roof openings and propped up the moon roofs. I also drilled out all the lightening holes in the steering wheel for accuracy. I mounted and painted the CB radio and 8-Track player. I tried to weather the bottom a little to show some wear. I also toned down the bright shiny chrome rims with Tamiya Smoke. Finally, I printed and attached my own Florida license plates. If you have a Monogram Van kit in your stash, I highly recommend you build it. It goes together so well. BTW, the other Monogram '77 Chevy Street van is exactly the same as this one right down to the extra port holes & optional windows. The only difference is the decal sheet. I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I had building this gem. Many Thanks! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
