............. by Revell.

It's a bit of an oddball this one, fitting somewhere between a snappie kit and a regular kit. All the parts fit well, virtually no flash or sink marks. A really nice touch are the chrome inserts for the door mirrors which fit extremely well and look good too.

For some reason, I cannot get the drivers side interior panel to sit down any further but since the body is held to the chassis by just two screws, I'll take it off at some point later and have another go at it. So I'm calling it good for now.

It only took four days, start to finish but I'll build another down the line sometime as I think it has a lot of potential in a diorama.

Showroom clean!  Very slick work, one would not suspect it's a "basic" kit.  I wonder what the original Jeep soldiers of WWII would think of it!

A typical Skid Solo build Al. Clean and professional.

Hi Al,

This is very sweet looking Sir, I remember looking through a custom 4X4 magazine many years ago and saw one of these in it, it was a deep Midnight Metallic Blue, I fell in love with both the colour and Jeep, the colour especially, so like Colin, if you do manage to get anymore in, I would love to get one too please...

Andy...

Thanks all.

As to the 'Muddy Brigade' amongst you lot, as I said in the short WIP thread, this one is staying clean but I will be building another later in the year which WILL be part of a 'Down and dirty' off road dio.

if you do manage to get anymore in, I would love to get one too please... wrote:

No problem Andy, I'll put you on the list.

Hey! maybe we could do a members group build?

Mitch pointed out elsewhere that I had forgotten to apply the decals............ DOH!!! So here they are:

I thought I posted a reply here but guess not. Sweet build and great colour choice for a nice paint job.
