I've been a Jeep nut my entire life.
My uncle had a 62 Willys Jeep PU that I remember well; and I've just gotten some vintage photos from my cousin of it to recreate in scale. I have the AAM body and donor kit, proper resin wheels/tires, I just need to scratch build the missing rear fenders (which made the kit purchase a literal steal and those fenders will take no time to make :wink: ). It's going to be really fun, as I love weathering...just never get a chance to do it much w/all the sports cars and exotics and shiny stuff that I'm most interested in.

A friend of mine restored a '67 Jeep CJ a few years back; recreating one he remembered from childhood. It was fun to drive and ride around in, and got lots of attention, but it wasn't too practical to use for it's intended purposes and he sold it to help finance his passionate hobby of flying, and buying an old Cessna 180. Traitor :roll: :wink:

Oh yeah, he's a traitor, but, he could put some flat fenders on the landing gear and convert it to a flying Jeep. Yeah, that's the ticket.
