I believe that this is the same as the Tradesman van kits that you have.  There are custom interior pieces and custom rear windows with w-i-d-e tires, but no mags.  I do have plans on building this kit, just not right away.  Sorry.

I am a Dodge Tradesman sucker... I also have reason to believe I may have been conceived in one Sadly these vans are usually a bit pricey since they are vintage kits. Gotta pay to play I suppose.

Scooped this ‘74 today

As well as this, what appears to be a ‘72 today as well

This I picked up a few weeks ago but thought I would share amongst my acquisitions today. A ‘77 that is identical to the ‘78 my father had when I was born.

Sadly it must have been stored in a hot attic or something, the leading edge of the hood was pretty warped. I got it about 95% straightened out, but I may end up doing a transplant from the next...

Bought this junkyard ‘79 same day as the ‘77. Will be using the hood to repair the ‘77 and the upper quarter panels to patch where someone cut out the port windows on the ‘72 I bought today. I’m sure I will end up using the roof as well as a lot of these vans on ePay have had the roof butchered.

I hope you build up this Dodge, would love a review of it! I have been debating buying one of these for a few month.

I got these two kits from an auction of a Club member's recent passing.  I was the only bidder for these two kits.

Won this on the bay today.............

  

 

THAT is a really fun, easy kit with massive potential for kitbashing. I grabbed a glow in the dark version too.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Hmmm;

 I lucked out last Sunday , the eighth . How ? Do you remember the 1972 GMC stepside SWB pickup by ERTL/AMT ? Well I saw one at a friends store .I started to ask him about it and he took it off the shelf saying " I know it's been started , but it's all there " it 's yours ."

 When I asked him the price he told me no price , he hadn't been able to get to the Hospital last Feb to visit becaues of a broken ankle in San Antonio , where he lives . He wanted me just to enjoy the build .

Classic!  Pricey.  Probably has the steel axel rods.

I picked up these kits today and haven't yet decided whether I'll keep them or get rid of them as I'm still "thinnin' the herd."

I saw the ZZ Top Eliminator kit at my local Hobby Lobby today, however I didn't buy it as I already have plenty of kits to build.

Mailman dropped this off today.

Open but appears complete. Has a little bit of warpage that I'll have to figure out how to remedy but all in all it looks good.
