Really like the looks of this truck. Not sure about the chrome frame rails, but otherwise it looks great!

Body cut. Not sure if I should cut out the grille.



After some contemplation, I went ahead and tried to cut out the grille for a more scale look. Unfortunately, the scour-peel method didn't work. So I had to spend many hours carving with a xacto knife and filing to get the lines as straight as possible! All holes have been reamed out too.



Skeleton and muscles done. Time to install the brains.



Needs some skin tone. Or maybe I'll leave it translucent!

License plate fabricated from aluminum. This truck is built in loving memory of my Dad, who thought me how to build and play.



Luxurious leather seats, why not.



Wooden benches for passengers. Wood strips from Daiso.



Home-made wipers 'manually operated' by rolling handle in keeping with Jeep Willys tradition.

Finally got my driver done. Made a nice hat for him too.
