Delivery van walk-around
All pictures Lee Nehlsen

A common sight on both US and European roads, the famous brown delivery vans...  As far as we know two different kits of this model have been available, a plastic kit made by Walthers and a white-metal kit that was made by N.J. International. We thought some pictures of the real thing might come in handy when building either one of these kits, so here they are...


Clearly visible in this picture, glossy (aluminium) side panels, matte (fiberglass(?) roof

A set of photo-etched parts (mirrors, rear bumper handles) is available from Plano.

Some pictures of the cab interior (in case anyone wants to add an interior, neither of the kits comes with interior....)

The top view above shows that the fiberglass roof hasn't been painted brown completely. Because the fiberglass is translucent light falls into the interior.
