So this will be my second build of the Revell Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. I love this kit and see many more coming into play. I hope to have more pictures up tomorrow. Today was very slow, but yet productive day.

 

I've always been a fan of the Roll Cage Doors. To me, they just add that extra style and attitude to Jeep's. So that was my first To-Do on the list. This was my first time cutting out doors on a model that wasn't junk. Needs a little more work, but I'm happy with the turnout thus far.

I'm not sure if I will be hinging the door as there is no room on the interior tub to add a hinge without in interfering with the dash board. I will be looking at it some more tomorrow and doing some more thinking. Will hopefully have a bigger update tomorrow since the most tedious part to me is over.

Yea... Needs some tweaking. May consider building a new one. Work picked up so it's moving really slow at the moment.

Technically, the doors are hinged on the outside on the 1:1 vehicle. Not terribly difficult to do, but may be tough in scale if you can't find a small enough hinge pin.
