Well think again chaps. Minairons - who specialise in Spanish Civil War models - are about to release a wonderful inter-war Ford AA van and this is such an unusual subject that I for one think it is very exciting! Obviously how excited you will be will depend on whether your area or period of interest includes the need for some pre-war commercial vehicles.
Obviously, from a war game point of view these 1930s Ford vans would make for some terrific pieces if your are in to either inter-war conflicts or early WW2 scenarios. I imagine the Very British Civil War enthusiasts will be snapping them up as commercial vehicles pressed into militia service.

into an ambulance by adding the included side window panels.
I need two such light vans, one to use as an ambulance (although the Rapid Fire rules don't require that such an auxilary vehicle be used as part of the game) and another as a radio van for my forward observers to use (RF mentions the use of a car in this role, but they say tomatoe - I say tomato)!
So, there you go - a lovely little model which will be available from mid-September - I'm afraid I don't have any idea what the price will be as yet, but expect a review of this kit as soon as it is on the market.
