Perfect!
Only commercial products like Jeep Dragon have that look so real.
That seems primed bodywork in a factory today.
Long live the king of styrene !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks guys. On par with Dragon...surely you jest

Worked on the driver side for 2 days and have it just about ready to be glued on. This side is much more involved since it has different levels for the fuel filler neck

I must have hit a bad sheet of styrene...it kept breaking on the corner. After cutting out 3 side panels, my patience was getting very thin, so I pulled out another sheet. Cut #4 and it worked fine for the base layer... the subsequent layers came out good also. Don't think I've run into that before...seemed like the density wasn't consistant with the rest of sheet in that same area.

I'll get some pics this weekend and post 'em up.

Germ, from what Padre said...the Dragon Jeep is a model kit and deemed the most scale 1:6 Willys Jeep body available, but fetches a pretty high price.

Here is just one build with the body, try a quick search for "dragon Jeep", quite a few builds with this body.

lol, I don't think this will be ready for Christmas this year, but thanks for the confidence.

I still have alot of work to do and a trailer to finish for it. I might consider selling at a later time, after I get to play with it and take lots of pics of it finished for my archives. I'm going to try 1 more 1:7 scaler sometime after this one is done. Then some rare 1:8 scale Jeeps, for the SCX-10 chassis, that I will be making just to sell. Or vice-versa to fund the 1:7 scale build.

Finally got something to show. Finished the side panels so now we can call this part of the body work the "Tub".

Here's the finished driver side


Some of the inner details


Fuel filler indent


Gas tank with the filler neck and mocked for test fit



...and the cowl...it won't be permantly mounted until I finish with the some items I'm working on behind the dash panel.


My driver was bored sitten in the workshop all the time, so he decided to come and check out my work

He likes to get up close and personal when he's inspecting my work


Since I finished the driver seat frame, of course he had to make sure it was going to be suitable

Then a quick test fit


He decided the bars are a little rough on his ***, so he relaxed in the back for a few.


He'll be pitching in from time to time to help out...he's getting pretty ramped up to take it out for a spin.

Wow! This thing is looking awesome. Very nice indeed.
The details are amazing and all the lines and curves looks so smooth. Keep up the great work.
Great driver too by the way.

Wow...Impecable work very clean and nicely done... i especially like the amount of detail on the floor board and the shifter...the seats must have been a pain to fab. they came out great...are you going to cover the seats in canvas or use styrene to finish them up...
