I must say this is a good looking kit to build and have, but something about the quality of the kit it's self remains to be seen. The plastic the kit was formed from seemed a bit soft and was difficult to sand or file. Many of the pieces needed some working to fit nice and good. Some of the pieces were poorly molded and some of the mounting tree blead into the smal pieces during the molding process. All~in~all it was a challenge, but worth it in the end.

It is a great kit. I found the only downfall is the front inner fenders need a little tweeking with a BFH to get it to fit right.

 

Nice build!

I like to work just as much as I don't.

Thank you big-e-models... I got that old Ford van from Santa about 15~16 years ago. It is a Johnny Lightning 1/24th diecast Coke van I stripped down to do as a replica of my real 1999 Ford van. It displays well with my builds. 

The real one:

The little one:

(before the detail added)

 I really became inpressed and inspired when I found these chrome trim rings for the wheels from a 40 Ford kit, like I had on my real one.
