    Wow! Epic kit, and they even upped the scale to 1:20 for XL awesomeness!

    Is this based on a real, existing van? I see a brick fireplace in the thing – I’ve seen a lot of 1970s custom vans, and that’s a new one on me. I’d love to see how/if it worked out in real life.

      I think it was probably influenced by the Warlock. I don’t think it was a real van model. Bradley designed real cars as well as models, so I’m guessing it’s a kit original.
