I am posting some pics of two interesting plastic kits . The Tamiya, British SAS Willys MB WW2 1:35 in Weathered Desert Camo (lot of effort with paints and clear) and
an Italeri Willys MB with Trailer 1:35. which I assembled a couple of years ago.

Excellent job Dussey !!! You are obviously very skilled.

I wish I had more time to work on some of my kits. I will post some pictures of my WIP 1:16 Minicraft Cadillac V16.soon.

what fun!
is yours a red jeep?
Because I saw this one in the TINTIN shop in Belgium or somewhere in 2003 but the asking price of 22 Euro was too high.
I d love to know where you bought this one - do let me know please because I also collect Tintin memorabilia

@Sankar - Thanks for sharing the snaps. Bit toy-ish though!!

My MB is bit more detailed. Was traveling most of the previous weekends. Will soon post the snaps you asked for.

Here's one more interesting model of mine.
A 1;24 Scale "Ajax". Chevrolet Flatbed Truck with a Ford Model 'A' Doctor's Coupe with 'Spirit of America' colours.
This is by National Motor Museum Mint.
You would have noticed, I basically collect Classic & Vintage.

Default The SAGA of RESTORING A SCALE MODEL.

This is a BHPians Merc. It is a 1990 Revell 500SL.



This is what he wants it to look like.



This is what i want it to look like.


It will be painted Matt Black / any other color..

There is a problem though.


These two screws dont open. So i suggested that we cut it so that the wheels fit. The thing is, the wheels will not be able to roll. But as long as the car looks ok, i personally dont think that that should be a problem. The owner thinks otherwise though.

Mods, May I suggest, two threads on Scale Models are similar, one is ' Article on scale models' and the other 'Scale model thread ' maybe it will be appropriate to mesh them into one. ?
