Wow, are they supposed to be the same size?

Yes. For me the height difference wasn't apparent until viewed from the back. I wonder which one is more accurate?

I had seen this thread rather closely before I became a regsitered member, and now I can put my appreciation on record: Nice vans, Jeff and everyone else! Love them all!

This display must be a dust nightmare.

As Ian says the Michelin pairing is top notch.

Cool models, Gary! ;)

I should get one of those older white Transit vans. They bring back lots of memories from my days at Ford.

Love the supervans! Mk 1/2 Transits bring back fond memories for me - I was shuttled to the British Embassy School in Bonn each day in the 1980s by a fleet of Ford Employee Transit mini buses.

I'm another fan. Big apeal for little $$$ considering these are budget part-works models.

Ford Transit (1978-83) David Jones Rally Support Van by IXO. I would have prefered the Borham livery seen in the photo below.

I've always enjoyed IXO's LWB Mk I Transit part work van, but I was aware that it was undersized and inaccurate in some of the details. IXO has finally correct the situation. Note the identical licences plate numbers.

They might be the ultimate "white-van man" machines, but being motorsport support vehicles is their rightful home as far as I am concerned.

I like the idea of the plain white van and the possibility of some code 3 customs, not just for rally cars but sportscars too.
