    It's the full kit, there's a 4 cylinder under the hood, I should snap some underside and under hood pics .  Shot in Testors tangerine through a Paasche H airbrush.
    Thanks for the kind words.

    Jeep CJ-5 resto-mod
    Hi Guys,
    Finished up my Jeep CJ-5 resto-mod.  Bought a bag of jeep parts at one of the Detroit NNL's for a couple bucks. Almost enough pieces to put one Jeep together, the missing pieces came from the parts box.
    I put the axles under the springs and added dual shocks up front to get a little lift, tire/rims from the parts box (I think they are from the 1/24 Dodge Ramcharger?).  This is Jeep 3 of 6 for a future diorama (I'll start a thread for the dio as I get Jeeps 4 through 6 closer to completion).

    I forgot all about the figures that came with the kit.  I darkened Pams hair and gave her glasses.
