Hey all, its been quite a while since Ive either posted or built anything here,but today I bought an AMT 40 Ford kit and some evergreen sheet...heres the result of an inspriration pic and a couple of hours free time,you can kinda see where its going so far. I have no ideas on paint colour,interior or wheels yet so Im kinda just winging it...fingers crossed I get this one finished up:/

Ok so here we go with my first progress update...Ive spent the last couple of hours tonight replicating the left side and adding some bracing to square up both sides and pull it together. Next step is going to be adding the split windscreen area and reshaping the bonnet/ hood to. Hug the new van body. Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.

Cool project! I like to whole idea except for the wheels. Being and old guy I would go for the old style wheels and tires possibly with white walls.

If I were to build one like this it would be the shop truck for a surf shop or motor cycle garage!

be Well

Thanks following guys. Heres another small update, I did some work last night adding the windscreen area and removing the wedge at the rear of the bonnet/hood so that it butts up square to the windshield area. Ive still got some filing to do so that i can add some round rod to resemble rubbers without them making the holes look too small.
