    Building Scale Model

    Hello all, I am going to be scratch building a couple of scale models of my '68 Sportvan 90. Does anyone know where I can find some drawings with dimensions, to save me the trouble taking pictures and getting out the tape measure, thanks in advance.

    I wonder what he would use to make the mold out of. I'm making mine out of wood. May not be perfect, but I have 1/25 models of all my other cars and the van would complete the shelf.

    I think Jimmy Flintstone is in the process of making the early Chevy's now. He already has the Dodge and Ford on his website. I'm in the process of building the Dodge and waiting for the Chevy to be completed. 1/25 scale

    I'd like to see those, does he have a website. I'm making mine from two pieces of two by fours cut down and glued together. I'm using a dremel to cut out the details and windows, but It's tough making straight lines because of the grain the wood get soft and hard. Mine's a window van, so there's a lot of cutting. I'll post a picture when I get a little farther along.

    Building Scale Model

    Nice - I like seeing that thank-you

    Small point:
    1964 or Early 65
    No Back-up lights
    Not 6 rows rows of grill slots
    Emblems not on the doors.

    I commented as such on the site.

    FYI - A 1967 is also there:

    Pretty neat, but mine's a 90. I'm not sure how this translates to a 1/25 model. Do you plug this software into a 3D printer? Anyway, I put a thin skim, of bondo on my wood model to make it easier to dremel out the windows. Should have it done in a couple of days, material cost=$0

    1967 didn't have side markers.

    Wow...that took some time. I do not have artistic talent.
    Here is the link for the model. It was going to be ready by this past Wednesday but not yet . Last i spoke with him he was "working on the mold" so must have had some tweeting to do. Anyway said it will post on the web under hot new items as soon as its finished.

    Building Scale Model

    The people on the 3D web site send me a note - they re-ID the 1966 model to 1964.
