The A35 is my 'restored version' of the Airfix rusty and dented Wallace and Grommet Anti-pesto van, and the Mini is SunStar's 1/12 diecast from a few years ago.
I quite like the old Austin A35 and A40vans and realized that Airfix's model kit was probably the only way I'd own a large model of one. I filled all the dents and simulated rust, added tiny hinges to replace the dog-leg versions, and fabricated the flying 'A' hood emblem from polished aluminum. Paint is automotive basecoat/clearcoat.
