I've always wanted a Willys pickup but all that is out there is the Spec-Cast 53 flatbed, soooo with the 3d printer at work and some design software
I made some parts

Glued the parts together but it needs some further adjustment. Back to the drawingboard.

The first test shots will make some nice little trailers.

Awesome Dan. Great job. How hard was it to make the data sets?

The Autodesk software is almost completely counter intuitive. I have about 6 hours into the designing of it. The most recent test shot shows the fenders are too small for the tires I want to use on the model

Holy Toledo, as they say.  So, you're using a die cast for the basis?  Let us know about what needs to be done as far prepping the new material and what paint works best on it.

another iteration with some adjustments to better fit the die cast frame. It somehow got a little too long and may need to be shortened.

It will now need much sanding and filling to be ready for paint. The plastic is ABS that is a close relative of the plastic of any other model and can be painted like regular kit parts.

It does look a little long, but not bad at all.

Looks good. Is the bed a little long, or are the rear fenders a little too short?
