  1. I take it the blue paint pic is from before the rebuild? I like the wood bed and the tail lights. Very nice!๐Ÿ‘

    1936 Ford

    That is very nice Ken! I like it lots!๐Ÿ‘
  3. Your panel lines look great Bob!๐Ÿ‘
  4. I hope I didnโ€™t kill your plans.๐Ÿ˜ฌ A 4-door TJ is still a really cool project. It just wonโ€™t look like a 2020 model.
  5. Beautiful work on that brass! Looks like a fair bit of engineering went into it.๐Ÿ‘
  6. Yes, it looks blueish to me. The gunmetal has none of that.
  7. Found a good way to strip the peeling decals off my 5th wheel. Warm slightly with a heat gun and scrape them off with these plastic scraper blades. It gets the decal and 95% of the glue off. Gunwash on a rag will take the remainder off.
  8. Is that the Revell of Germany kit in the flat box? I have opened mine a couple times and put it back. I find the instructions a little intimidating. You can always put it on hold and start another simpler kit. Get a kit that youโ€™re not in love with so it wonโ€™t bother you as much if you mess up a bit.๐Ÿ˜œ
  9. No kit available of the Willys, only a diecast stake box....so I cast one.๐Ÿ™‚ Link to my long, slow build. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/156181-โ€˜54-willys-pu/
  10. This 1/24 diecast would be a better starting point, as it is a JL. Unfortunately it is a truck, but it has the correct grill, fenders, hood, taillights and the four doors. I am surprised with the popularity of the new(er) 4 door jeeps that no company has kitted them??? https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B08DL94PHL/rocketfin-20
  11. Youโ€™ve got your work cut out for you! That kit is a TJ body style (turn signals in the metal fenders). After that body style came the JK and JKU(4 door), then came the JL which is what a 2020 would be...or JLU? There are as far as I know, minor differences between the JK and JL. This kit may be a better starting point. I have messed with the Revell kit but have not seen the Meng kit so I donโ€™t know how detailed it is. Good Luck!

  12. You WILL need patience while waiting for sprue glue to cure, if thatโ€™s the route you go.
