Posted · Report post

Well I got this one finally finished, it's the Revell reissue of the '77 Chev van, very simply build, I was just trying to make it "period correctish".

Painted Shogun grey with a Lavender purple roof and pearl coat over the top.

Decals from a Chevy Citation kit.

Only mods were wheels (MRC Hop up set), '67 Chevelle mirrors, Aluminium exhaust tips and it got lowered a little.

Beautiful kit, have you built the amt kit yet?. I think the revel kit is nicer.

Yeah I built the AMT kit first, I agree the Revell is a nicer kit, better fit and easier to assemble. I've still got to put a Ford Phantom van together to compare it to them.

I'm building another AMT Chev now as a diorama.

That's a cool looking van Rob! Did you make the decals for it? I have one of these that came with the trailer. I did my first top chop on it and that's as far as I got on it. Looking at yours makes me want to get back in on it and finish it.
