'AMT' Custom Econoline

Recommended Posts

This is the Round 2 models re-issue of the AMT 'Vantom' kit, and it shows it's age, with sketchy instructions, no part numbering on the sprues and hit and miss parts location. It's my one and only build of 2018, and I actually started it on Christmas day 2017... but sometimes I don't touch a kit for a month at a stretch, and I rarely spend more than half an hour at a time on building.

I added the roof spoiler and hood scoop from the spares box, cut the sides to fit the portholes from the inside and carpeted the floor with craft felt. Colours are Ford Tibetan Gold and Roman Bronze, and it's my first time using the Molotow pen for the chrome.

You've done a superb job on this one, two tone paint really sets it off.

Groovy.  Looks right out of the 70's.  Simple custom look, not overly done.  Almost bought a Ford van in '72, but settled for a C-10 Chevy pickup.
