Finished off another model today, it's a reissue of the old MPC Zinger A100 Dodge built straight out of the box but with different decals and painted with Holts touch up paints. Just a quickie build to keep me going.......

Have been busy as lately tracking down some more stuff for the vanning museum...........
Just need to finish of this gold van and extend the shed, until than I'm still on the hunt for all things van related!!!!!
Got another MPC 1/20 scale van released in 1978. The Highjacker!!



And a complete set of all 44 Donruss Truckin Trading cards.



And after a tip off from an old truckie mate in Sydney another number plate for the shed wall/museum collection............



And some stuff that was very kindly donated to the museum at the Vanning Legends Reunion by Fuzz Heinrich, including the original wooden Wizard scroll, copper name plate out of the Wizard, several trophies it won over the years including vanners choice and top mural from Van Nats and some more old Van Wheels mags! Also an original Simo Bubble window and two plaques presented by John Schouten.
I also managed to get a heap of photos blown up and signed at the reunion to get framed.

I cant wait to put this all together guys for everyone to enjoy! Passing through the area????? call in for a browse and cold beverage or cuppa!!!

Ok by now most of you know I'm a big kid at heart and collect all things van related and build models so here's my latest acquisition for the collection/museum!

Tamiya Lunchbox.



MMMMMMM lots of pieces........ drool



Bought it's first upgrade! Aircraft quality bearings to replace the plastic bushes.....good for 10% improvement in performance apparently!



The body!



And finally built!!!! Have taken it for a test blast or two, love it awesome fun, I love it, the kids love it, Tigoor the cat hates it!!!
Just need to give it a nice custom paint job when it finally stops raining and the floods subside! (Also bought some chrome rims for it!!! Bigger motor is next!)

Got a couple more 1/20 MPC Van kits, think I've got just about every 1/20 MPC van kit ever released! Funny thing is once people know your into vans, they start to contact you about van crap. I didnt even have to search for these babies.............got a phone call asking if I was interested in them! Does a bear sh1t in the woods!!!!!!!! Laughing Laughing
Both issued in the early 70's and with awesome box art and boxes in good condition too!

Picked up a couple more kits on ebay this week.

Already had one of these but it's good to have spares and it was the right price.



This ones a bit rarer and was a great price to, many thanks to Serendipity for picking it up for me.



Anyone else collect van stuff or do I have a Monopoly on it?

Been a bit quiet of late I'm but still collecting van stuff for the museum, the last few months has been hectic as so I better update some of the new stuff I've scored recently. Very Happy

Recently Dave scored Street Legal to add to the MV stable, he was kind enough to give me it's original show boards for the museum. Cool



Steve Towers joined MV recently and gave me the original fuel cap off The Scorpian at our recent reunion.



Brian came onboard and donated the original gear stick out off Alley Cat to the cause.



Steve Abbott donated a Van Rat leather piece already framed to the museum.



Sharon Fernance donated a trophy Checkmate won in 1987 at the Pacific show for best medium van to Scotty B.



I tracked down a vintage light the same as whats in Checkmate from the UK.



Fuzz Heinrich donated the original plaque out of the Wizard to me at the last reunion, MVer John Schouten made a beautiful wooden bar light to mount it in. Fuzz signed the back of it at this years reunion to show it's the geniune article. Cool



And here she is lit up!



Plus a heap of other stuff.

Cheers Rob

Great collection there Rob! is it possible to buy a "forgotten dreams" if you happen to build one? Only reason I ask is it reminds me of when I was a young feller, I used to see many a HQ even HT's and a couple of XY's rotting silently under trees.

Hey mate I only ever built one "Forgotten Dreams", I've had a heap of interest in it but it'd be hard to put a price on.

I'd cost a fortune if I charged the hours that went in. Laughing

A mate and I hopefully will be doing resin bodies soon when we get some time so maybe you could get one and build one yourself?

Cheers Rob
