Hello all

I’ve been looking for an engine for the
Dragon 1/6 Willys jeep, but no success!

Any ideas where I might be able to find
one?

Thanks all

Alan

The Shapeways engine is mentioned in post #39 of this Willys Jeep 75th anniversary build, though it seems that contact to buy it isn’t producing anything..

I wanted one when I built mine, the Shapeways one is expensive but I could never get hold of anyone to produce it so didn't bother in the end!

Thank you all for your replies.

I have e-mailed Shapeways-have to wait and see what happens!

It is a shame there wasn't one with this kit.

Thanks again

Regards

The engine kit was a limited edition ‘special’ for the DX08 show in 2008., seems crazy not to have re-released it since as an option or a combined kit special, especially since the Jeep was recently re-released.
