    Back to modeling
    It's been a long time since I've posted here. Basically two years of little to no modeling at all. The wife and I moved from our house to an apartment for my wife's new job (new to the area and wanted to make sure my wife liked her job and with me being in law enforcement I wanted to scout out the potential areas we would live and not end up in some crime riden area). We now have a house, have my model area setup, just finished my paint booth and got an airbrush. All I can say about using an airbrush is why did I wait soooooooooo long to get one!! I had always used cans to prime and paint the body and parts and the amount of overspray and smell (wife has respiratory problems so I always had to use the cans outside). I've gone with acrylic paint for the airbrush and absolutely love it. So easy to clean, dries quickly and no issues with the fumes for the wife. First on the list is a Tamiya Porsche 959. Glad to be back

    Thanks for the replies. Guess its either the Grand Cherokee or scratch built. I saw the 1/20th scale on ebay, I might be able to swing that one. Once, again thanks guys.

    Looking for a Jeep Cherokee
    Does anyone know of any manufacturer that makes a 1/24 or 1/25th scale of a Jeep Cherokee? I found a Grand Cherokee by Tamiya but would like a "regular" Cherokee. Thanks guys

    Its from Dupli-color Sonic Blue Pearl



    I knew I skipped over some detail. I can still do the skid plate though, thanks for the suggestion I'm going to start on that one before I get too far along.

    It never occured to me that there was going to be no room for a hinge on the rear passenger side door till after I cut the doors out. More future planning next time I guess. This is going to be more of a "show truck" then a floor model, so I figured on making it a little more crazy and creative. This is all a learning experience for me, thanks guys for keeping up

    I had to wait till I got a pen vise drill (the best tool I have bought so far, highly recomend one if you don't have it). I had to custom make some leaf springs for the suspension stock one is the bottom:


    Needed to make those for the new tires, Supper Swampers!!!



    The brass pins are temporary just to see if everything fits, then I'll make all the adjustments





    For the leaf springs, I got the idea from here:
