Now they are amazing!!

Love the magazines on the dash and I am sure the tax is up on one of them.

Do you Ebay them or something?  A bit modern for me otherwise I would order some.

Very impressed.

Great Derbys12 but you aren't going to get off as lightly as that. :lol:

We want to know how, if possible with more pictures.

Superb detailing Derbys 12

Are you producing your own decals for the vans?

The interior and dash details are brilliant.

I would imagine there is a nice little market for vans detailed as well as that a good way of subsiding your modelling purchases.

Very nice - they will look outstanding on a layout either on their own or as a group parked up. Thanks for showing them.

Very impressive! When I first started looking at the photo thread I thought, "Hmm. A fleet of white vans and their drivers on the layout. OO gauge road rage!!" Then you added decals ...:It's a no no

"Gives secrets away" :question:question I started doing that over 4,000 posts ago, across three re-incarnations of this forum and I'm still doing it :exclam:exclam

As I see it, that's the kind of forum this is, we all help each other   ...   it makes for the "family atmosphere" we have on here.

Others correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the two main questions are the make and source of the vans, and the decals :hmm ;-)

D12, you are a star :exclam:exclam

I was just wondering how you managed to get such detail on the dashboard, those newspapers and tax disc must be very small.

Also an idea of how you made the racks (material etc) would be very interesting.

BTW I am impressed with the standard of your workmanship on these, there's no chance of spoiling any commercial interests by letting a few cats out of the bag, the vast percentage of "modellers" out there wouldn't have a clue how to get close to your standard, all they want is to buy it ready made. :exclam:exclam

Thanks for your response, well done that man :exclam :Happy:Happy

Right lads here we go.

Vans were from pound shops but no longer exist, so bought from ebay when i can find em.. theres loads stuck in china!.

Decals are made by me, but now found out i can buy em ready done cheaper than i can make em!.:brickwall

As for the racks they are just plastruct square section and l section on top of a frame.

The gauze is what u use to patch a car body, when using filler etc.. magazines and newspapers are taken from 1/24 images from a model truck mag and shrunk down. Also are the tax discs.

I have alot of health probs, so my hands don't always let me do stuff!.. shakes etc. but i did 6 vans over 2 days, 9 in the past 2 weeks.

I am about to do a fleet of DHL vans, and some other ideas i got floating around my head!.  lol.

Tomorrow actually getting my layout boards up hopefully!.:thud

Superb detail and consistancy D12.
Although I'm with GJG wanting 1930's N scale, I can also see that for a modern layout these would be very popular.
Many thanks for sharing, I'm hoping to reduce things like GWR posters and platform notices to stick on my stations, obviously it can be done.
cheers

i would be interested in knowing who supplies your transfers?
