The decal produced is entirely red with a black crown and in the AMRM review it was laid onto a white sided van.
I know this is a unlikely request, but does someone out there know if this is likely to be correct? I don't suppose I could be lucky enough to have a fellow RPer have some resource that just happens to describe the van...
The photo used on the SOAK packet looks to have come right from the great Peter Vincent's collection, which in itself troubles me.
It seems to be clear in the photo that the upper 'triangle' is not the same colour as the lower 'triangle', likewise the text towards the ends of the van 'use the best' and 'made in Australia' also appear not to be a colour matching those on the billboard.
Would it be controversial to suggest that the lower 'triangle' might indeed be red, but that the upper might in fact be dark blue? Which would place the logo on the van somewhat closer to the logo I vaguely recall from their product.

Could it be likely, based on the above logo that the body colour of the U van in question might have been yellow? Given that could the text have been more likely to be black?
I really like the Bryant and May U1044, I purchased the decal and painted up a U van ready for it. However, having looked at the Peter Vincent photo I am no longer sure, in fact, tonight I sprayed the van back into plain wagon red and put a standard 4 wheel underframe back on it...
