Oh, it looks so awesome. Hope you finish the deadline too. 

Do you plan to release the instructions? 

Thank you! I think, I will make instruction only if I will make pretty strong wheel mountings at front (now they are not so strong). I hope it will be possible with mustang rims (I am going to buy it in near future)

This is coming together quite nicely! Would it be an option to use a 3L axle with end-stop for the steering wheel and 8T gear? 

Thanks! Do you mean this solution?

I came into the problem, that I haven't necessary red parts to built the doors (top border). For this reason I want to ask for advise: which color I should choose to rebuild my model? Only yellow, white or black

Don't go with black if you can. Black is easy to hide black studs and may be treated as such. Also other colours will show the details better, I think. And of course with wrangler, there's that contrast part with black pieces.

+1

If you go with black, you lose the contrast between fenders and body. So I'd say yellow or white, but keep the fenders black. Yellow is my favorite.

+1 for yellow. Like in that picture, not only with black bumpers/fenders but also black roof and rear window part.

But... your hood will then not be possible like this as the mini-panels (#21/22) are not yet available in yellow (they come in 2020 2h with Volvo dumptruck)...

I feel your pain as I'd like to do any other color than black as everything just blends in. Could a black roof with black door tops be a option. Yellow would be very nice.

Thank you all for your replies. Of course, I will save fenders and roof in black

Now I have this

Yes... But we have light bright orange panels, that may be useful in hood, or I will rebuild a bit hood

I do not like too much your mechanisms because everything seem to fragile for my taste but the bodywork is awesome.

U could also use LBG or DBG mini panels to mimic some unfinished stainless steel teardrop plates.

To be honest, model is pretty robust except front axle. I want rebuild it in future

 

Well, I think I am pretty near to finish

Front parts is still red, not for a long time)

Rear suspension is work very nice. All doors now are openable. Also side doors are removable

I came to the problem, that making removable roof will me pretty complicated without plenty of system parts. I should think about it really good...

While I was recolouring front part, I also tried to rebuild front suspension to make it truly independed axle.

And I managed it! Now suspension of model is full torsion

Hello!

Here is it

800x450.jpg

I rebuilt a hood, now it looks pretty nice

800x450.jpg800x450.jpg

 

Also I made dashboard

800x450.jpg800x450.jpg

Glove box is here

800x450.jpg800x450.jpg

 

Jeep Wrangler is not Jeep Wrangler without cool suspension

800x450.jpg800x450.jpg

 

But I still have a problem with a roof. Should I try to make a roof? On the one hand, without roof here is pretty comfortable access to gearbox, on the other hand - model looks undone without it. Or not?

 

Thank you for reading!

I would make a simple flat removable roof (Technic panels, maybe System plates+tiles even?) that you could just lay on top of the build, maybe 1 or 2 (axle-)pins to hold it in place. Like the hardtop in my own entry. Don't make it too hard on yourself, simple is sometimes best.

Really nice work with all functions and interior details, true hypercar in an off-roader body :pir-huzzah1:

Removable roof would be a great option, but even without it this car looks so pretty!

Thank you for comments. Of course firstly I was going to make the roof removable. Problem in thickness of roof: if roof was removable, it should be around 0.5 stud thick

It looks great on yellow, I really like front part and rear part and they are very recognizable :thumbup:

I am happy to say, that now I have got these amazing rims! I will try to reinforce front axle with it

Yellow and the Mustang wheels work very well!

I agree with the others, make a super simply removable roof in black, and you are done. :wink:

Well, looks like I managed it: now front axle is more robust than elder version, look at new steering knuckles

800x450.jpg800x450.jpg

I am really happy, that mustang rims came to me before contest's end
