Up for trade is this dead 1/25 scale Jeep Gladiator pickup project. Lots of pics of the current state here:
Starting with the Pink Poison reissue of Revell's Jeep J-10, I removed all the crude frame braces and molded in compromises, added a new tubular crossmember (like the real truck) and blocked the frame rails as best as I could. There is a slight twist to the frame, but it's pinned in the front where it mates with the front valence panel, so I think this will keep it mostly square when assembled:
The engine is a mix of Revell 1/25 Cadiilac (seriously) parts as well as others, in an attempt to make a convincing early AMC V8 engine. I'll let you decide how well I did so far, but the block heads, and oil pan are all assembled, with locating pins protruding from the heads to give a positive mounting location for the (resin) AMC valve covers. The intake manifold still needs to be created, as well as the pulleys/belts, but the water crossover is present. Trans is needed, too. Transfer case from the 1/24 Monogram Jeep CJ is present:
Work on one Dana axle has started, as seen above.
The cab has been modified heavily with a near rear wall, small rear window opening, and (closer to) correct ribbing added. I modified the interior floor, to, getting rid of the tub style for separate side panels...which still need to be scratchbuilt. The floor piece fits very well into the cab piece, and has been test fit with the frame to ensure a good fit. Those three elements are in good shape, but adding some locating pins would be a good idea:
Lots of work on the bed, too, as the box stock bed is too short. New floor has been started using ribbed styrene, but wheel housings are yet to be completed. Some wheelhouse pieces to use are present, but scratchbuilding them would be the best option. Please see the linked topic for more bed pics:
Nicely chrome plated grille and bumpers, which may or may not have been done by Revell...not going to debate it here. Windshield and rectangular headlight lenses for the late style grille are present, new rear cab window will need to be created by you:
PM me, please.
I'd like to receive one of the below kits in trade. Nothing started, please. Open and parts loose is fine, as long as it's complete with nothing painted, glues, etc:
