Thats it. I will say, that it is no kit for pure beginners. I made a lot of sanding on parts to fit them correct, removed the chrome on the engine for a realistic paint and (see the Kit preview) the most work was on the glass parts.

Comments always welcome.

Thank you buddies for kind words.

Do you mean with "swivel" to make a turn like on the picture without the glass on the trailer? If: yes, it is also possible. I post a picture this evening, when i'm at home ;-)

Your work is excellent. I really am torn on the kit though. I would have to ditch the rear canopy.

Thank you Jim....i started the Lincoln Futura.

This Transporter (choice of the body-/windowcolor) was a wish from my girlfriend as i showed her the kit when i got it. I gave her the choice to the Lincoln Futura or Pontiac club de mar Concept car.

she likes the lincoln more, so i have will build it now. Lying long time enough in the shelf and this truck is the point to start it. ;)

Wow you did a great job, I just bought one of these and looking forward to building it. I don't care for the wheels on it and I am thinking of putting dualies wheels on the back and the color not decided. You have done a great job on this kit......Thanks for the pics.

Thank you Dan, Mike.

The tintet glas is a choice in the kit. You can choose clear and those blue i used. I thought, blue looks better to the color and is "some other stuff like normal" ;)

I see those have been reissued, I will have to get one. Looks like it has a Pontiac(GM) motor in it. I would change that out for a Mopar slant 6 that I have, maybe an Mopar Big Block Mopar(440 cid). That little 4 banger looks to small?

A club buddy of mine is working on one too.

I hope it comes out as clean and crisp as yours.

Great paint and BMF work.
