Hi Jason

I like your ice-cream van.
I have an ice-cream van gallery believe it or not...
...Your now in it !

That looks incredibly like George Harrison from 'The Beatles' driving it.
I know he's an F1 fan, but does he like ice-cream van racing as well ?

Nice job with the Micro Scaley chassis.
I just got one of those for a WWII Wileys Jeep, tis the only thing small enough to fit I think.

Cheers

Si.

Hi Si, Hi Thai, Many thanks for your kind comments, and gracious thanks for inclusion in the Ice-cream Van gallery.
George Harrison is from the Marx Arctic Explorers Play Set, he was originally panning for gold, I amputated his legs.
Kindest Regards Jason

Hi Martin, Thanks for your kind comment's, as you know it was your own conversions that inspired me, thanks for the inspiration. It was a little fun to do, and killed a few hours.
Kind Regards and a Happy New Year
Jason

Thanks for the continued interest, I got the little Piaggio off ebay, often listed amongst die cast sometimes with the slot stuff, there's quite a range of different types available, not just ice cream vans. The Cab is made of plastic the rear die cast. It was a really easy conversion to be honest, I just broke the cab unit off the trailer, ground some lumps off the base of the trailer with a cheapo dremel type tool, then glued the pieces back together along with a hacked up Micro Scalextric Homer Simpson. Simples. Warm Regards Jason
