Transit is a light commercial vehicles series produced since 1953 by Ford Germany and Ford UK and conceived for European market.

The front engine of these vehicles allows to have a lower loading bed, which eases the loading process.

Anyway the very first Transit was produced in 1965 by the German and British Ford together, expressly wanted by Henry Ford; this cooperation gave life to what is Ford Europe today and to the well-known vehicle MK I. In 1978 it was further reshaped and the MK II was born.

In 1984 an esthetic restyling was made on the front bumper and to the engine, which was a 68 horsepower Diesel York of 2.5 L.

These vehicles have been a commercial success not only in Europe, as still today they are in production also for extra European markets.

The UK police, for example, used Transit Mk 2 in many versions. More in details, a lot of them, were specifically modified to better respond to the different operational needs during the police service duties.

These vehicles were generally used for major traffic accidents and during public events, such as football matches, concerts, end-of-year parties, etc.

This kit, scale 1:24, contains five printouts and provides for driving on the right as well as driving on the left.


Starter Paint Pack Includes:

6 x 17ml Vallejo model paints. Vallejo paints are supplied in plastic bottles of 17ml with an eyedropper device which keeps paint from drying and prevents spills. The model color range has been specifically developed for adherence on difficult surfaces such as metal and plastic, but the product is not toxic, not flammable, and does not give off noxious fumes. 

Please note: The paint packs offered are only our suggestion from the box art and will not match directly with the instructions found within the kit.

Plastic Magic Cement is a thin, liquid plastic cement with a 10-15 sec adjustment time & non-clog action. It is non-toxic, non-flammable, has minimal odour and almost zero emissions when compared to competitors.
