    Didn't realize there was a real one in the driveway, that's even cooler!
    It amazes me the quality of the roof in its raw form... such good work n00b.

    question: How did you make the roof part, did you laminate it or is it vacuum formed?


    btw, awesome work, certainly that window around the corner

    Golly! You nailed that back roof section. The rear side windows are really good. This is by far your nicest jeep thing yet.

    Rich, I'm lookin at that roof and can only scratch my head. Crazy clean work as usual sir. Those are really swell pencil lines too. Did you handcraft the drawing instrument as well?

    It's not done yet. There's still room for wolf dogs. Thanks guy.

    Can we get some shots of your 1:1 for reference? And for eye candy...
    This is what it looked like when I bought it. There was a lot hiding underneath that fancy red paint.


    And after I ruined it. I was trying to make it more scale.

    I bought it for no other reason than to make a scale model of it. Thanks Kev. I love how scratch built stuff looks before it gets filler or paint.

    It's just just plain old .100 sheet styrene. No trickery. Thanks.

    I'll quote myself from another forum
    "I don't have many pictures of the process since I was experimenting and didn't know if it would work. I removed 10mm from each side of the axles. I drilled the housing out to accept some aluminum tubing I had laying around. Then I cut a section out of the housing and used JB Weld to stick it back together. I figured out a way to make the axles come apart for service if they needed it. The axle shafts were just cut and brazed back together. I have no idea if this is going to hold up to actual use, but I'm going to take it easy on this truck anyway."

    Don't scratch too hard! Thanks. I found the pencil floating in a porta potty.




    I couldn't find any shocks that were short or thin enough so I built my own. They are made from 1/4" and 3/16" brake line and some 1/8" rod. Shock boots are from a Bruiser. I ran out of Sophisticated Finishes rust paint so I had to weather them old school with paint.




    I also threw some details on the axles. Breather, fill and drain plugs.

    Love how the boots are all humped up, they're never perfect.
    One needs a rip! Unless of course your full scale model does not.

    If we could rate you for ruining stuff, you would be a Pro too!
