My take on the Revell '76 Chev van. I opened the bonnet up so now I have to fill the void. Scratch built brake booster & master cyl. Added the screenwasher bottle, and not that you can see much of 'em, plug wires & fuel line.

Coils are from solder, I've got to add a battery, hoses & other stuff yet. The under bonnet pics I've found show a cluttered engine bay- so I've got some cluttering to do.

Cheers,

Chris

Springs and brake booster are what I first noticed. Excellent so far, but how will the rest get filled? We'll just have to wait. Thanks for doing a van! Not enough vans built anymore! With so many uses for multi-purpose trucks, van seem to have been forgotten. Maybe now that the Ford "Vantom" kit is back we'll do more.

I'm pondering that my self. Pics show a battery, radiator over flow tank & a vacuum tank to add yet. Some inner fenders too, I imagine.

I really should concentrate on finishing the '37 & '56 Chevs.............

Photo is somewhat over exposed, but it's getting cluttered in there, with the inner fenders & radiator support panel fitted.

Hoses & battery & overflow bottle next.

Cheers,

Chris

No pics this time, but things are happening. Replaced the kit exhaust, added radiator hoses,
Battery & heater box to come.

I'm slowly filling the engine bay............
