In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.
Or if you can’t, you could just build their van (which we always thought was a highly conspicuous vehicle for escaped convicts sought by the Government). Anyhoo, previous bloggee Chade has taken this latter approach, and a fine job he’s done too. His Technic recreation of the A-Team’s iconic GMC Vandura features working lights, remote control drive and steering, and – more unusually – powered opening doors; sliding on the side and twin-hinged at the back.
