<p>I did this plain white ambulance over in Blood and Custard as I thought it would look really good in those colors and I WAS RIGHT. It came out fantastic. Take a look for your self and it is on ebay like most of my own restos are. A little of the before.
</p>
<p>A bit of what was done to this Ambulance is in order.</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>Now for the finished ambulance.</p>

<p>Cam, You might like this one. Different color scheme than normal. Sold on eBay a long time ago. It was finished off in September of 2010</p>

Nice! The colors suit the casting.

it accentuates the grille and overall design much better.

Jim--very nice color combo....I always liked the \"blood and custard\" also! I have an older Dinky Guy van that I was thinking of having you do in this same color........maybe with British Railway Express decals........

I have used it a few times on various vehicles I have restored. British rail had a really good eye for color. Here we see a Dinky 150 Rolls Royce Silver Wraith done in Blood and Custard.

And another one. Sold them both too. This was my first one and the roof color is ivory instead of the pale cream I use now.  Looks good in either color.

Thanks Jay. It is one of my favorite color schemes even if I don\'t do it too often.

i remember a ford anglia being painted in this scheme that was a full size car that i see at a classic show and that looked very tidy, i like this scheme of colours it would work for a lot of cars, vans, lorrys or even buses.

Absolutely brilliant Jim.

I have a rolls royce phantom here that i intend to do shortly.And your colours have gave me some inspiration.thanks.

Glad I could inspire you Kev. The colors look really good on a Rolls. I have thought of doing a Hudson Commodore in these colors and have a matching trailer behind it. That is another nice combo.
Post pictures when you are done the Rolls, I for one would like to see it.

Well this one is off to Pennsylvania in the USA. I have 2 more with working lights to do yet but have not decided the color scheme. Hmmm Burgundy and Red? Hmmm, not for me I don\'t think, Red and Stark White would be good with White being the lesser color

well, win some lose some. Can\'t win everything as I\'m trying to cut down a bit.

I figure the two I do have are good enough.
