Canterbury Miniature Commercials Fordson Van
Now for something very unfashionable - building a model road vehicle from a kit.
I think I bought this one in along with 3 others at Chatham show around 10 years ago. At the time you couldn't buy the huge range of ready to use diecast models that you can now and since they were bargains, I stocked up for future layout projects.
Even now I'd look seriously at this kit as the cast resin body is really rather nice. Small vans are great for detailing scenes on layouts too as you can legitimately use them to add a bit of colour. With many of my layouts being a sea of brown and grey, this is very handy!
