1938 Custom Ford Van

Recommended Posts

I found this 1938 Ford Custom Van from Lindburg a while back...I think at an Ollies.  The kit is almost 100% box stock with the exception of the door handles, they came from the spare part box.

Cool Ford!! Red and blue look like they get along well together! What paint did you use on this build?

Bucky:

The red is a Krylon shimmer metallic candy apple

The blue is a Rust-Oleum cobalt blue metallic.

It all has two coats of Krylon flat white as an undercoat and each color has been laid on twice.  To top it off both colors have two coats Krylon gloss crystal clear to finish them off.

Very nice.  I bought 4 of those kits at Ollie's.  Built 1 and the others are for the parts.

Very nice build Peter...I must say that I had to look twice at that last picture you posted.  It looked very realistic...very cool diorama and perfect positioning of the model...did you make that diorama as well?

Thank you, I did make the diorama also.  It was a quick thought I had one day and took about a week to complete.  Most of the time was letting the drywall mud dry so I could work with it.
