Here's my latest build. Just a quick 4 day build of revell's new jeep kit. I modified the roll cage a bit and swapped the wheels. It pretty much fell together minus a few assemblies being pretty tight. Also added a little weathering because you can't have a clean jeep.

Looks like a fun kit. We were looking one over at my club meeting last Saturday.  I love your garden photo.  And no, Jeeps aren't meant to be clean!

Very NICE Jeep Jared, but I agree with Tom needs a little mud! ;)

Thanks guys.

If you look closely at the pics I added some light dust and sand on the lower half and back of the jeep and also the wheels and tires. The pics don't show it too well but in person it's just enough because I didn't want the weathering over done. I think the white back ground washed out alot of the weathering IMO.
