Does anyone know if there is a model kit of the Ford transit van (late 90s, early 2000s) in 1/35 or larger. I cannot seem to find one anywhere. Any help would be much appreciated. thanks.

If you look here

Transit

It should show you what a transit looks like.

I found this model on e/bay but it is based on the early 80s van. Hopefully someone makes a later version as i am completley hopeless at scratchbuilding.

OK I know it's not a kit but a die-cast model but you can always improve the details :


It's a 1/35 1995 Transit made by Schabak. Several liveries are available. I've bought #1305 (the one on the picture). Good details, metal body with plastic detail parts (bumpers, rear view mirrors....) No opening doors (but it's better like this )...Perfect for an OIF checkpoint diorama.....
