Did some more work on this one-added a rack, some accessories and a driver. Used a vinyl shower curtain for the tarp. Wrapped it around some wood shapes, glued it down on the bottom, then took a heat gun to shrink it down tight. I cheated on the rack, didn't make it myself-it was actually part of a wire make up bin (my wife will not miss it!). I liked it because it was chrome and took to the rust nicely. I did fab the supports and the small clamps that hold the rack to the roof rails. I will probably add some lights at some point.

Van Scorcher Part 1
Wow that looks great!!!! I would look at putting the brat wheels on it, the wider tires in the front would look great! Nice job!
this thing is so awesome, I love the detailing and can learn something from it as with all your models. I like the use of found materials it saves time, I know if I can use or modify an existing item for the new purpose I do it
AWESOME! rack looks spot on how about a teck deck strapped on there? with a few 'used' grind scrapes etc. Great work.
Really awesome! Goes directly to my favorites. One of the most creative and scale looking vehicles I have seen here in TC. Your work is really outstanding, mate.
Spectacular SRB ! i agree with Ram318 for the wheels
NICE i am liking this alot,
I agree with Ram318, it looks excellent and wider front wheels would suit it. The roof rack looks perfect.
Love all the stuff in the rack, and your buzz too. Great finished work.
That's freekin awesome mate. i love it,
but don't tell the wife about the rack, my wife would beat me silly with it!..LOL
Looks fantastic..but I agree, go with brat wheels....
Brilliant! I love this bus, i like the little wheels on the front too. That's what they ran back in the day. Inspired work!
the green beetle
Wow,best thing yet on TC!!!!!
Very, very cool. Don't change a thing!!
where can i buy that body
got me thinking, what if you ran two sets of RR wheels/tires on both the front AND rear..maybe give it a more scale look...such a cool concept you have there that just about any wheel/tire combo is gonna look good lol...
Really appreciate all the great feedback and comments! You guys are great! As far as the front wheels are concerned, I go back and forth whether to change them or not. I like the fact that it's a Scorcher set up vs hybrid although the larger tires are a valid approach too-I am going to leave as is for now-seeing that I don't have any other tire choices in my spares bin. The body is by Maisto. You can still find them on eBay, at least in the States, sold as a complete RC toy.
Absolutely brilliant - I love everything about this one! Superb!!
Truly fantastic mate! One of my faves on the TC, I SIMPLY LOVE IT!!!!
i new this was a winner when i saw it last time but you've gone beyond my expectations top job love all the details you've put in, puts a very large smile on my face, many thanks
Thanks very much for the great feedback!
What color do you used as 'green'?
It was Tamiya field gray spray paint. The fact that the color underneath was blue made it a touch more green. It is a matte finish color.
Very similar to this one specially for the rear wheels.. even if i would prefer narrow wheels on the rear..
Yes, I saw that one too. I still favor the Sand Scorcher rear tires so far but I am always changing things so who knows. Thanks for your comment!
...and what colors did you used to paint it? They looks awesome!!!
The light color is Rustoleum brand antique white spray-the green is Tamiya Field Gray spray. Everything was given layers of dull clearcoat in between weathering.
thanks a lot
This turned out amazing. You are a real artist! Well done bud.
Thanks again for the awesome feedback-!

another fine piece of work. I'd drive this if it were real. beautiful. you know your V-Dubs.
