Great kit of the famous mk2 ford tranny. Fairly steady kit to build even for someone new to model kits. I have normally just use Poundland spray paints and primer for my models.

Here is a few I have built in the past using Poundland UHU glue and spray paints

Shame they moved production to Turkey. The Vivaro is now the British van.


I had no idea we had so many Turkish trannies roaming the streets.
Does this kit include a copy of the Sun to put inside on top of the dashboard? Preferably with 80's headline like Sam sizzles in Sun,see p3

Haha love the homage to the only fools three wheel van and prat mobile, heat for the pics
Great, my dad had a transit with sliding doors. If you pulled them too hard they used to fly off the rail system

thisIs in fact where the phrase flying off the handle came from.

Hi OP, please could you tell me what the green car is to the right of the yellow one in the second picture? Not the model kit, I mean the specific car model details please. Thank you

Looks like a Ford Capri to my untrained eye...
Proof if ever there was that cars were absolutely horrendous in the 1970's. There were some gorgeous looking ones but none of these are.

No. It's American. I can see where the mk1 Capri got some design inspiration though.
Thank you. It looked like a Mustang, but it also looks different at this angle, and a lot of your other models are British so that threw me off!

65 Mustang GT350H (with the rear quarter windows instead of the louvres)

The yellow one looks like a trabant 601.

No rust on this mint condition one with less than 5000 miles on the clock, will be building mine in classic blue like this version.


Just 4,600 (four thousand six hundred) recorded miles.

A completely standard vehicle supplied to the Ministry of Defence in civilian specification by Ford dealers Perrys.

Put into service with the Royal Air Force. Stored under cover and used, in the main, only for the occasional movement of specialist equipment on Base.

Released from service and first registered in the UK in 2006.

Presented in stunning original unmolested condition never welded with all of its factory panels and exemplary paint finish.

The very best of the best. We doubt that you could possibly find a superior, lower mileage, un-restored example for sale anywhere – worldwide!

What a waste if a good van.

The M1... With a line of transits running the full length of it...
Just noticed you get 2 dashboards with this tranny kit so you can make it right hand drive, my yellow trabant above I had to convert myself.

This was also another model I converted to RHD and was supposed to be my last build till I spotted this tranny kit.

OP you seem to know about model kits would you know where I could get either of the following 2 kits,
33820172-BxR9k.jpg
or
33820172-N59KL.jpg

I'd love a model version of my daily driver and these are the closest match I could then find bits from other kits to match them better.

(I mean at sensible prices theres some of the first on ebay, but im not willing to pay 90 quid plus

There is always one.


And there's always one who always says 'There's always one.' Predictable.
