Here's my first completed build of 2013: an AMT Vantasy using kit custom parts and handpainted graphics. The graphics are inspired by Vincent Van Gogh and Robert Crumb's Keep On Truckin'. Hope you enjoy, comments welcome.

I love this. Nice play on words, and great job replicating two of Van Gogh's classic paintings.

Bill, this is, without a doubt, my favorite Van ever built, awesome work on replicating Van Gogh's paintings, and the Van Gogh flames are perfect! The kicker is 'ol Vinne himself on the back, I want one like this to drive around!

Just imagine if Vincent Van Gogh had been alive during the van/CB radio craze of the '70s. I wonder what he'd say if someone asked him if he had his ears on :blink:

Here are a couple other artist/"van" ideas:

Nissan Cube - Picasso version (cubism :P )

Claude Monet's Brinks truck - I got my mind on my Monet and my Monet on my mind. :unsure:

But seriously, anyone who can duplicate Starry Night that nicely on the side of a model is doing something right. Loved the depiction on the back doors, too!
