Dipping into the archives again, this was done with inexperienced painting skills but a lot was learned from the process.

Many thanks for looking.

I saw a Ford Transit painted up like that back not too long ago.

I laughed so much I nearly crashed the car!

Nice job Mr H.

Same shape Transit but it had a Dublin reg, it was actually done quite well, but I wondered why they bothered.

This was a nostalgic hit for me, I used to love the A-Team (I was of the right age group back when). Beautiful build!

Thank you gents. The aerials and wipers seem to have disappeared over time and looking at that paint I think I need to hunt down another kit somewhere and do it again.

Very nice build..! Another note its the only AMT kit of the Chevy/GMC vans to have roof ribs making them more correct to the 1 to 1 vans. You did great on this one...

Stunning details. You nailed the wheels, tires and trim. Always loved that color scheme.
