Two "De-militarized" Willys jeeps

Both of these are based on the MPC Hogan's Heroes jeep kit.

The first one has a home-made half cab, diamond plate quarter panel patches, a CJ grille, and the wheels and tires from a Revell Bronco.

The second is done as a hunting rig, with a hunting platform made from Plastruct materials and aluminum mesh. Years ago the rotten body tub was replaced with a CJ-5 piece- I got this from a glue-bomb Daisy Duke Jeep. It's done as a long-abandoned hulk, so it's missing a few pieces.

I always enjoy your take on beat up old pieces of equipment.

Most people aren't aware that there was a CJ-2A civilian version from 1945 to 1950.  The "A" stood for agriculture as it was intended for farm and ranch use.  I had a three speed two range gear box with two or four wheel drive and an optional power take off.  It also had a manual throttle on the dash so you could run it at a constant speed.  There were a plethora of plows, blades, scoops and other attachment for agricultural use.  This was the first vehicle I drove.  My dad had one and we ran the wheels off of it.  It is still running on the farm to this day.

Great builds!  I especially love the half cab. Everyone has seen one of these with a home built cab. There was a dark blue one with a plow that lived at a local gas station when I was growing up in NJ.
