I built an Original 72 Annual and a :Hombre" re-issue of the Commando.
Plus I have an Auto-Scape's issue of the "Mountain Goat" version
The Jeep type grill is the OLDER issue.
The red "Mount'n Goat" on the right is the Commando grill and in all the issues since the 72 annual
I have a Parts lot 68 that needs Stock parts to restore!!
The Sedan/Wagon type roof was Last in the 72 Annual!!
Surprisingly the Stock open rims, and even the Chrome Jeep hubcaps were
on both the Hombre's & Mountain Goat's chrome trees.
Also, to build a standard height suspension, I just reversed the Hombre/Mountain Goat
mounting points for the axles & springs.
My built is a Fire Department cruiser. Like an Older Chief's car.
It has the Snow plow from the Annual kit too!!

neat info edsel; I would like a plow kit jeep, getting very hard to come by
That plow is available in resin. There is an eBay seller that offers it as well as RMofMD.

If you wanted to do a realistic junker, the holes in the body look just like drilled holes. To make them look like rust, take your exacto knife and twist it in the holes to make them jagged. You will want to connect some in a random pattern.

I got the body in that condition i'm not a fan of rusty's so I may just fill in the swiss cheese with putty and fix her up??

once squadron green has dried will be time to sand the fake rust holes down hopefully smoothe and body will be restored..... and I can figure out what color to paint it!....
