Just completed this one. I used three paints for the body in layers, starting with Tamiya Light Gunmetal, then Tamiya Gunmetal, and finally Model Master One-Coat Blazing Black Lacquer. I printed these plates off some time ago when I did my KISS Army Vette Van... Borrowed "Dirty Donny" skulls for a cool look... And I made a rear tire carrier to fit my fifth wheel. Wheels and tires came from my Jeep CJ-7 kit that met a tragic end with the floor and our cat. Also hard to see are the two gemstone portholes I mounted on the back panels at the rear of the van. Instead of tinting the rear glass, I took sheet styrene, cut it to shape, then painted it Blazing Black. I then glued them inside the van against the rear door, then stiffened it inside with thick sprue. Once all that dried I used Micro Krystal Klear to glue the portholes to the sheet so it wouldn't mess up my work. I'll try to get some better lighted shots of the back to show the gemstones. A nice kit, but be warned. There are flash, edge seams, and sink marks EVERYWHERE in this one.... CHECK EVERY PART.
Finally getting around to messing with this one. Been wanting to do a custom van since my snap together model days of the 70's. I love these vans.
