Red Green's Possum Van

No, it's not my build (though I wish it was!) It was built by Andrew Desautels, who is a member at Aircraft Resource Center (website for model planes if you didn't know). I found it while searching for pictures of the Possum Van, and thought it looked great enough to share. (Full page is here.)

It's insane the amount of detail he put into it! If it wasn't sitting on a table, I would think it's the real thing!

What do you guys think? :P

If your canadian and don't know who red green is, then your not canadian at all.

I had the chance to meet Steve Smith in the CBC building one day here in Toront, also got to go on set.

Heh...george, Steve Smith is Red Green!

Greg - It's probably mostly the people up North here that have seen the show. It was/is shown on PBS and on CBC, and I'm sure different states have different programs.

Mr. Desautelsdid an awesome job building that. I've thought of doing one myself, but it wouldn't turn out that good...

Thanks for posting the pics Jordan!

Interesting , yes interesting in the fact that no one has commented on the fact that when A M T did that kit , they built it as a standard long wheel base van. Now here we see that this model is NOT A LONG WHEELBASE VAN , it's a Maxi Van ! That friends took some very careful body work . Oh well, guess i'll go back over to one of the Van Forums I belong to .

Well you put the word french in all capitals, I don't care if your french, spanish, or german, ETC. Almost everyone in canada with a TV who watched CBC from 1991-2005 saw the red green show atleast once.
