    Thanks Mike, I believe that you're correct about the tires. I was a little disappointed with the 70s era off-road Goodyears. David G.

    OK, here's a little more. I hope to have this one finished soon. Test fitting the windscreen gives it that classic Jeep silhouette. The ride height looks about right too. The flat finish paint I used gave me some concerns about the decals "silvering" . To reduce the chances of this happening, I masked the hood and sprayed a gloss clear coat to reduce the paint texture. It looks like the clear coat wasn't really needed. I'll probably forgo the clear for the hood stencils, if I decide to put them on. Say, does anyone else hear the theme from M*A*S*H? Thank you all for your interest and kind comments. David G.

    I agree with you on the tires Greg. I'm not sure what I'll do with the recoilless rifle yet, but I've already used the MG on my AMC Pacer Recon. David G.

    As near as I can tell from looking at the model kit, this version is based on the Ford... or Willys Jeep that would have been manufactured in 1942... or as late as 1955. There's just not enough detail to chop it that finely. Painting is easy when everything is the same color. I did give the seats a light spray of tan paint to give them more of a canvas look. Chassis with basic "mud" wash. Who ever heard of a clean Jeep? More mud with some rust and oil thrown in for good measure. The dash detail includes data plates that I printed for the glove box and instrument detail. I painted the gauges black then lightly sanded them to remove the paint showing the engraved detail. And of course, a dirt wash for the body. As Always, thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to comment. David G.
