You have done Toledo's Jeep factory proud with this build! My grandfather worked at the plant during the war , so it is a special thing for me when they are built stock.

FineScale ran an article some years ago on a PKD (Partially Knocked Down) Jeep build, as if it were just being uncrated and re-assembled, dockside somewhere overseas... cargo space being at a premium and dockside labor being fairly plentiful and cheap! it would be cool to see a 1/24 version done in that fashion. Jeep frames were made of several pieces of stamped steel, and were riveted together; a wrecked one with a damaged frame could be repaired quickly using other wrecks. Jeeps left in the Philippines were quickly converted to Jeepneys by lengthening the frames and building personalized custom bodies for them, many in polished stainless steel!
