1976 Chevy Van Custom “Stardust Express”


Recommended Posts

Here’s my finished ‘76 Chevy van custom from Revell! I have a WIP posted under the Workbench if you’re interested. Built box stock with Testors Extreme Lacquer Purple-Licious on the body, with two coats of Wet Look clear and two coats of Pledge Floor Gloss. Interior is the same purple for the upholstery, and Tamiya gray primer and various acrylics for the details. This is a fun kit that goes together well!

I enjoyed watching the amazing level of detail you put into this build.  Great paint finish and all of the period custom body touches. The interior details are the most interesting to myself and I like the marine vinyl type finish on parts of the interior.

Fantastic work Zack, looks ready for the pages of a late '70s magazine feature. I enjoyed watching it come together on the WIP thread.

As others have said, you have a wonderful collection of period-looking builds there. Any more in the pipeline?........

Thanks!! I have tons of build ideas rolling around in my head… and tons more kits to build 😂 As far as customs go, I have a Ford Cruising Van to complete my Big 3 custom vans collection. I also will be doing a ‘90s style street Rod ‘40 Ford Panel, and an MPC Ghost Rider C3 Corvette that will get the wacky box art decals. Not sure when I’ll get to those, I want to knock out a couple quick builds next.

Spectacular van! One of the nicest I’ve seen I think! Beautiful paint and cleanly done for sure. Your interior looks amazing! Very well done 👍

I enjoyed following your WIP, the result is a very well designed, beautifully built an and looks like it deserves to be at a truck-in show & shine. Congrats from a former vanner, you nailed it.
