Happy Anniversary to the Willys Jeep! Here it is, the finished tribute to a very iconic 4x4. I enjoyed this build, even with the kits short falls. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Absolutely stunning Nem, if I didn't know it was a model I would swear the pics are of the full size jeep.

Nem,

One more comment. I would be sure you had this thought out but the photos show a distinct difference in the wear on the mounted tires versus that shown on the spare tire. Just brilliant and so subtle. My hat is off to you! Tom

Outstanding work Daran, I think this is your best yet!! Very hard to tell that this is a model and those monochrome photos really do look like original WWII images.

Very well done indeed mate - top job!!

It was done on purpose to show different wear between the road wheels and the spare.
Thank you Kev, this was real fun to do and in such a large scale I had to get it right as it could have looked way over the top, hard to hide anything when its this big!
