This is my next project now that I'm finally getting my shop back together.

 

1/18 scale diecast 41 Willys. This is going to be a simple repaint and some small detailing.

I am seriously looking forward to this, since I have a similar project in my mind.

My tip: Ditch that engine and get yourself a blown Big Block from GMP.

Because that's what I'll be doing.

That's too easy,lol I did that on the last one. I did some more detailing on the engine tonight. My next one is going to be convert it back to stock. I have a flat four from a Willys Jeep hat should work.

Here is my last one with realistic door hinges.

I do. I normally use Dupont Self Etching but I have used other brand with success. On bare diecast it is a must to use self etching as the first coat.

I finished it up except for the rear license plate. I have some 1/18 AZ plates made but need to find them.

Real nice job on that Willys. That so called "push bar" really is a tube to be filled with ballast to add weight to the rear end of the car. Gassers were street legal and had to have a starter. They did not allow push starts like on the early dragsters of the 50's & 60's.
