Cuckoo Nest Wing

Recommended Posts

Looking for the Roof Wing for the AMT Cuckoo Nest Ford Van. I am wanting to build a replica of the Firestone Ford Van to match the F150 and Courier. Any help would be appreciated also if you know of a roof scoop that is close to what the Firestone van had I'd be interested in that as well. I could also do 3D files too as I have 2 printers. Thanks Everyone.

Here is my van so far. My kit is the Surfer Van.

I've got the Cuckoo Nest van (but intend to build it that way).  I haven't looked at it in a while, but I remember the wing being a bit smaller in proportion to the van compared to the illustrations.

The wing on the Firestone van looks like, and probably was, a commercial item that was sold to the general public.  If you could find a magazine ad or article dealing with that specific piece, you could scratchbuild one that would be closer than the Cuckoo Nest kit piece.
