Brand name of kit(s): Revell vw t1 panel van Kastenwagen
Information:
This kit started off as the Jägermeister t1 panel van witch I decided not to go for the design on the box and wanted to do something different . I built the kit mainly as the instructions say to do apart from some small changes witch were that I lowed the suspension by a few mm because I wanted it to have a more functional look. Then for wheels they are from a ford mustang 2+2 fastback witch are painted in Tamiya gold leaf (x-12) . Then for the interior of the van I decided that I wanted to go for a well used truck look . Firstly I decided to add in an extra bench seat and then weather the floor by using some citadel nuln oil and the use of a revell weathering kit. The rest of the panel van is virtually a standard van apart from the colour. The blue that I used was ford vision blue metallic and for the gold I used a gold leaf metallic with small black flake the bumpers were both hand painted and hand cleared Tamiya chrome silver (x-11) and Tamiya clear (x-22). final note about this kit is that the only problem that I had with it was fitting the hatch that covers the engine compartment witch turned out it needed a bit of work to get it to fit correctly in the correct position.
