[TC18] Another WIP: currently civilian Jeep Willys

Recommended Posts

Amidst the storm of small scale suspensions, gearboxes and Porsches, my TC18 car ideas were becoming obsolete fast. A change of strategy was needed so I'm looking for something a bit different. At the moment it is still a very quick and dirty mock-up, but I like were it is heading. No promises about features yet, but I'll put some interesting functions in somehow.

Nice shape overall :-)

But are there 5L liftarms in red available?

Also: No steering...?

As said, at the moment its just a quick model to see if the scale and proportions would work in this scale. I'm working on a pendular front axle (with steering) and would like to have a fake engine up front. I have not yet looked at which colour I would want and if the necessary pieces exist in that colour. Red does look good though:

It's just a work in progress, I might even toss this model and try something else instead. Time will tell ...

Hmm... not too sure about this one. The party trick of this little Jeep was going to be a convertible roof. However, My efforts to make it compact enough for this scale while working as intended are not giving the results I hoped for. I might need to go back to the drawing board and pick another vehicle ...

What for? The original does not have such a function. Make every effort for the body, steering, engine.

Just don't drop this project.

Some of them do have roofs that can be manually folded away as seen in the image below and on most wartime jeeps:
