My new project in addition to the real thing is this 1975 Chevy Van scale model I got at a local hobby shop, shown as a fire rescue van but it can be built anyway you want it. The grille and a few minor details won't match but I'm gonna try to have it look close to my 95 by the time I'm done.

Finally started to work on it this week, went and bought a bunch of paint at the local hobby shop and started to paint the small parts.

Got the engine together just need to do a final touch up once the glue and paint fully dries.

Working on cutting out the windows, going to use black "pony bead" rubber lace to mimic the weather stripping and cover up the cuts and then use clear plastic as the glass.

Undercarriage and frame, working with enamel paint so need to wait a while longer before I give it a final coat, then I can put the suspension and steering together.
