This Jeep was part of a 48 hour build of which I had completed in 32 hours with a lot of Coffee and bathroom breaks.

It is painted with all Apple Barrel acrylic paint. Body was Jack-O-Lantern Orange. Interior was Dark Gray and Charcoal for the body accents. Different browns were used for the mud.

Thank you everybody! Chuck, orange is a factory color that does not get used much. I think that is why you see a lot of orange on the Jeeps. I chose it because the mud would show up best on it a opposed to a darker color. I almost had to wear shades while painting it as bright as it was lol.

Looks good in orange. The dirt is very convincing as well.

 

It's a neat kit, I hope Revell comes back to this one and offers it with some more options, a hardtop would be nice.

Great looking Jeep, Chris.  Looks good in both clean, new and properly-used modes.

 

(Love the license!)

Thank you Aaron and Danno. I do wish it had more options like a motor lol. I do plan to build another one but put a motor in it.

It looks good both clean and dirty!  After seeing this built up a few times, I am liking it more and more.  I may just have to pick on up.

Bill, I used LA's Totally Awesome Mop & Shine acrylic floor polish on iy. It is a form of Future floor polish but MUCH cheaper with the same results. I get it at Dollar store or Dollar General. Thanks for looking.
