Stephanie's Rose- Halibrand-equipped '41 Willys - Completed 5-4-2014!

Recommended Posts

Being new around here, i have not seen this build before, and i have built a few Willy's over the years, they are a great kit, with great results, so with interest i started at the beginning, and read every single entry. I have to agree with what every body else has already said.

This is one amazingly detailed build, probably one of the best i have seen, an absolute credit to you Art, like every one else, looking forward to the next update.

Uh oh...I feel another episode of willysitis coming on. Guess I'm not completely cured.

Man, I really hope to be able to view this in person one day.

Brad, hopefully this can help you out, but this is your last dose!

Here are the last pics I took of the WIP before finishing it up for the So Cal NNL last Sunday.

It will be headed under glass as soon as I can get some shots taken of the finished build.
In the meantime, here are some pics my friend Fuelish Spectator shot at the NNL.

Art... I have to ask what color and brand of tans have you used for the interior. Its a perfect color

Chris, my friend, just realized I didn't answer you. Sorry about that. The interior paint is nothing more than Testors Flat Interior Tan enamel, thinned with lacquer thinner. I was going for the look you would see today at the Grand National Roadster show on some of the current 1:1 interiors by Mangus, etc. The color was just what I was looking for.

Brad: "Willysitis?" Isn't that what Ms. Lewinski had?

Art... Thanks brother for letting me know what color that was. That has to be one of the best looking tan colors for an interior. I know what you mean when you are looking for that certain right look and you nailed it buddy!! I am going to have to use this color sometime in one of my builds. did you mix it 1:1?? I can not wait to see what you are going to be working on next. Don't keep us waiting too long...lol

I also meant to tell you that I can't wait to see this one in person. The pics of it at the NNL's that John took looks killer.

Terrific!

I'm glad I'm not up against you in any competition..It wouldn't be worth getting mine on the table.

I'd be very surprised if this didn't sweep up trophies at NNL etc.

Truly inspirational work. Your skills amaze and motivate me.
