41 Willys - 1/25 Scale

Recommended Posts

I have been working on-and-off since August on this project. The chassis main section is made from 1/8" square tube. The box 4-link rear is 3/16x 3/32 rectangular tubing. I started the roll bar using 1/16" brass rod. I tried to use some of the the online sources from Tim McAmis and others. Here are some images. Thanks for viewing.

Thanks for the interest in my 41 Willys,and the comments by Tony, Dave, Scott, Ray, Michael, Stephen and Gene. Thanks for following up on my build Randy I still watch with astonishment the great work you do. Tim thanks for sharing your enormous workmanship and machining skills.  Stephen I did make the jig. I also use Ceramic Honeycomb Perforated Board.

Here are some new images of my latest work. I don't like the seat frame so I am re-doing it. The doors, I made so they lock. I changed the door and hood hinges. The frame fits so it can be removed.

Ron this is really cooking.  The tubs look great, everything is killing me.  Locking doors, on a 1:25 car.  Gotta love it.

Wow, definitely subscribed as I have this kit in my stash.  Looking to go Pro Touring style with suicide doors and tilting hood.  Now just need to get my skills up to the dream!

 

Later,

Hi Lee,  I'll bet looking at what Ron does will get you along further.  This is good stuff.

Ron, you scratch built a metal motor a while back.  Will it have a home here?

Hi Lee,  I'll bet looking at what Ron does will get you along further. 

As does looking at Chris's 1/16 Prudhomme Vega FC build.....both off the hook!

 

Later,

I appreciate everyone's interest in my work including Michael, Gergo K, Dave, Le Roy, Bob, Bruce and Rob.

Michael, the locking door idea came from a builder that was building a 1/16 model. It was a struggle in 1/25 scale.

Here are some picks of my latest work. I re-did the seat frame. The other version just would not work out. Thanks for your interest.

Thanks Gordon,

I just realized I did not set the bellhousing on the mid plate so I need re-do some work.
