This stuff?

UHU Twist & Glue - All Purpose Glue

Claims to work on everything....hard to believe.

Excellent Jeep! One of these days, I'll have to take mine out of the box....

Re: DML Jeep build

A small update:

I added some more details to the engine


I am almost ready to start painting the engine and engine accessories. I am going with Ford engine grey, as this appears to be late war.

Here is the wood filler I mentioned earlier



The model has non opening molded tool box lids, I decided to remedy this.




I built a box on the underside, this will make the underside look more accurate as well. Then I cut the lid off and made new ones, glued on hinges and viola.

Re: DML Jeep build

Small update

I got the pintle hitch from ECA installed.

added the tow chain rings


I also primed a bunch of it, but those are pretty boring pictures.

Re: DML Jeep build

I finally got the engine most of the way done.







I still need to weather the engine and work on some paint touch ups, and get that metal carb and fuel pump looking right.

AND I need to paint the frame and wheels then I can install the engine. Lots of work.

Re: DML Jeep build

Thanks guys. i am having fun piecing this together, but I never thought it would take so long.

Got some more paint slapped on.

This is my self mixed OD.


as you can see, I also got the engine in there.



I got the ignition wires added and weathered the engine





Left for this phase is to weather the frame, and tires, then I can move onto body mods.

Re: DML Jeep build

Looking good well maybe up to the paint job if I might be so bold.

Either my screen is way off or that is kind of lime green OD Green:confused:

But overall a killer job so far.
