Nice :thumbsup: Haven't seen this kit before. Nice subject for a big build :goodjob:

I got two of them, going to do it as a Canadian Jeep

Hi Richard. Yet another of your builds that I will follow with admiration! (Great start on the steering!)

Hi Alpha, thanks for your kind words steering turn out how I wanted to be, I think it looks better to have wheels turned on a diorama

Amazing that the steering of jeep work, and look as good.

It really looks like one "big". :popcorn: , cheers mate

Thanks Francis It does'nt look big against the Matador :winkgrin:

Nice build, Ill be watching, have you seen these, scale working springs!

Thanks Rich, yes I have but I did not buy them because I am sitting the jeep on a flat surface by the side of the Typhoon

Gorgeous things happening here Richard, great work on the seats. The last photo is vaguely reminiscent of the TV series "Wheeler Dealers" :winkgrin:

Lovely model Richard - that big lad in the last photo looks like he would be handy with a hammer.

Thanks Julian, seats are little different than what they should be once I put the seat padding on you wont see

A remarkable level of detail ...good job for now :popcorn: , cheers Richard

It is quite a nice little kit the Eduard set is good also

Hi Andrew, thanks for looking in and you are right about big lad when I scale him to 1:24 scale he comes out at 6'-3" and the small guy is 5'-6"

Did some more to the front seats they are not correct but they will do, will make the back seat and then the seat padding

It seems that the "crowd" also likes your work ... :popcorn: , cheers Richard

:D not sure why we can not get some normal size figures, these guys are all 6'-0 except one, how many WW11 guys were over 6'-0"?

Looks like this will be some size diorama :popcorn::popcorn:

I think I may have to make a coffee table have the diorama insde and then put glass over it.

A veritable treasure trove there Richard, those crewmen look very interesting and I notice a Catalina perched coyly on a wooden jig in the background :coolio::winkgrin:

I started the Catalina, but I found I got an allertic reaction to CA glue every time I used it, but since then I have bought thin ZAP CA glue and have not had ant reaction.

Beautiful work Richard.

Several thoughts:

The chassis stands are great. You could start a full restoration shop there; I can pretty well hear the four banger idling away.

Work space uncluttered, amazing.

Setting the bar very high for coming SAS Jeep build.

Really looking forward to seeing this develop, great art.

Thanks very much Robert I find 1:24 scale you can add as much detail as you want to do.

Started the back seat, made it with the hinges

Then I went back and added the hinges to the front passenger's seat :mental:

Excellent work Richard. A veritable magic 1/24th Jeep.

Thanks Julian, had to look up "veritable" never heard of it ever now I know, learn something everyday :winkgrin:

Very nice,I love the 6 wheel Matador!

Its coming along Arni and yes I like the Matador as well.

The seats are hinged is incredible .... :popcorn: , cheers Richards

Not hard to do Francis, all you do is squeeze the tube flat then i drilled a .016" hole and then pined it.

best regards

Richard

I love the seats - they make such a difference.

Where did the figures come from?

Seats did come out not to bad, they are not made as the real ones but close, regarding the figures

This one is from Barracuda Studios

IMG_0916_zpstiwpqfd1.jpg[/url]

This one comes from Grey Matters figures, he is the smallest

IMG_0917_zps2acxmnzg.jpg[/url]

These three came with the 1:24 scale Trumpeter Spitfire mk Vb

IMG_0918_zpsr3mjifyz.jpg[/url]

I think these two are twins :winkgrin:

IMG_0919_zpspwlavhan.jpg[/url]

Last one came from KFS Kit Form Services, this is a modern guy will change him to look like 1944 guy

Small update to the Willys Jeep, changed the petrol tank to a British one due to the Jeep is going to be a Canadian one working with the Canadian 440 squadron at the landing air strip B9/Lantheuil, Normandy Sept 1944. They might have had the USA version but who knows.

Then I want to have the canvas roof cover on so I have made the supports out of 1mm brass tube, still got to make the bracket to hold it.

Coming along very nicely! Fire extinguisher is new too I believe.

Did not realize Cdn and US jerry cans were different. Between this forum and the Google machine, learn something new every visit.
