I see a few vanagon threads these days, and since there seems to be a crossover I thought I would mention this: I was at Wal-Phart yesterday and they had some fairly large, maybe 1/6 scale, radio control vanagons. The detail and trim was not too bad and the molded in color was not terrible. With a good strip/paint/detail it could be a very scale looking model.

I bought a 1:6 scale huge honkin Stuart tank that is R/C. I stripped it, painted it witha good airbrush job, replaced the stock crap with a good Tamiya DMD unit and conventional R/C system. The base quality was good enough that it turned out nicer and more detailed than the Tamiya ones I have that are 1/2~1/3 the size at $600~$800 Vs about $350 total for this.
