I decided to strip these 3 down today I have had the AA Mini van for years, I will put the Land Rover on the Spot On topic as I progress. I will have to order the spares for these, this will take the time.

This is as far as I can go with these until the parts & decals come. I look forward to finishing them.

I have ordered the roof signs rear doors & decals , they are reasonably priced so easier to buy

The colour match on both looks perfect.  I imagine the yellow on the AA was quite hard to find.

Not if you buy SF Paints as they are bang on for the most part.

I learnt a lesson tonight , don't do the waterslides when you are tired, finished the AA van but RAC will have to wait until the next set of decals come made a complete hash of them putting the door ones on the wrong doors & smudging the sides while trying to correct them

Welcome to the "Mess them up while placing" Club. I have done that more times than I care to remember. I have single decals from a number of cars and trucks stuck to my exhaust fan in the Dinky Room. Messed up one side of a bus so, as the other side was already soaking, I put it up there. Reminds me to do them one at a time.
Otherwise you have done very well with these two very nice Mini Vans

Well done Andy. As Jim said, all those mistakes happen to all of numurous times. As I am not familiar with those models, with the yellow model, did you place the decals on the rear doors while they should have been on the side doors? And did you then do the same with the blue one.....?
