Looks great. Only thing is that there should be some dark gray in it.

Yeah, there are a few inaccuracies in the model, the biggest one being the DBG on the top of the van. Funds are a bit tight ATM so I had to work with what I had, thus DBG was out. Actually I don't think the shaping would have been as good if I used another colour.

Other issues: the elevation of the red stripe should have started after the front door not the side door, the stripe should have been thinner (half beam) across the front and side, the front lights should have a split through the middle and been a bit smaller, the spoiler should have a gap etc etc. 

What I concentrated most on was the shaping of the van, and included details where possible. Sometimes accurate detailing didn't come across well in technic form (or simply didn't work), so I modified it where necessary.

It's still very much a learning process, but I'm having a lot of fun with this new hobby :classic:.

Sorry, that went on longer than I meant it too...

I know the original A team van was mostly grey which many confused for black. This is such a great moc i'm sure we will forgive you for not using grey. For lego, I don't think the grey would work. I vote for Hall of Fame.

I don't think it's quite at HoF standard, but thanks very much for the mention!

Great job on all the functions and having all of the motors hidden away so nicely. I liked the video too. Fun stuff !

Another awesome MOC. It's pleasure to see some sort of evolution of your MOC!!

Finally your MOC is getting bigger and has more functions along with over 1700++ pieces

Thanks mistakecargo. For a mid-sized model I was shocked when I found out how many parts the van contained.
