Hi everybody,

today i will show you my Ex Vantom. The kit was partly build, the body painted and some - or more - parts were missing. All parts, that makes the Van to Vantom were gone, also the dashboard and backlights. So i removed the paint, make my own paintjob, some bmf and build my own dash.

Here some pictures:

I like this Van without all the tuningstuff. So i get another Gluebomb from the first issue and today the new "Phantom".

Thanks for looking, comments always welcome

That looks great. Have you thought about adding some decals to it? Like "Los Angeles County Coroner". That would look great in my opinion.

I've been anticipating the release of this kit for some-time (truly , over 20 years !) ; I can hardly wait to see it at my LHS .

Thank you very much for comments.

The "new" Phantom is 100% the same kit. I get mine yesturday and i like it. So you dont need to hunt the old kit.

That looks great. Have you thought about adding some decals to it? Like "Los Angeles County Coroner". That would look great in my opinion.

I agree!

I plant, to make a tow vehicle for my Dick Rathman's Hudson. Thats why i painted it black/white. But when i wanted to fix the decals, they were very bad and too thick. I ordered now from Jim Heller new ones. The same quality that i used on my Hudson.

I think also about a S.W.A.T-Van. The colours always remember me...

Dominik,

You did a great job on this build! The dashboard looks correct for this van.

I have to pick up one of the re-issue 'Phantom' kits. I had a 'Vantom' many years ago that never got completed.

Mike.

Awesome build. It's remain me of an 70's Popular Mechanics mag project, using a Econoline 250 van, whit have windows in the passenger side only, and they converted to a multy uses van.

I really like your build.

Very nice, clean build. The badges look exceptionally nice. My only criticism would be that the side mirror brackets look out of scale, but I'm not a van guy, so maybe not.

"Yes officer, I saw the getaway car. It was a black van with a white top."
