This is an older build but I just found the pictures on a hard drive.

Built as if it was pulled from a barn after a nice long nap.

Very Nice Barn Find Willys! I like the weathering, it looks excellent to me and very realistic too. Nice idea of it having only engine block, too, but the Cylinder Head doesn't look very realistic. It's easy to make some upgrades to those Cylinder Heads, I made valve springs and rocker arms (?) on mine few years back, and it looked much better than that AMT? Part.

Overall it looks excellent!

It looks just fine to me, rust is no easy thing to do in plastic!

Well done.

That looks really good ! The engine block and the flat tires are items that are usually overlooked .

Thanks for all the great feedback. I am shy to post my builds as I never build to show, just for myself.

I have many more I can post up and with the warm reception I think I will do just that. Time to dig through the archives and snap new ones too! I have at least 15+ projects on the bench at any given time.

Thanks again.
