That's looking pretty slick! I like the engine cover you made to hide the battery.

I decided to convert one of my Jeeps into an SAS desert rat vehicle that the British used in North Africa in WW 2. This project was a lot of fun researching and finding stuff in the spare parts box to put on it. A lot had to be scratch built and I think the only thing it doesn't have on it is the kitchen sink --- and valve stems.

Weathering looks good. Check out the wrestlers at Toys R us.

I have one with another on the way. They're fun little things, they are a good contrast to my 1/10 armor.
Nice to have a model I can basically run without a lot or preparation. Hoping there will be upgrades for gearbox
and axles at some point. Would be nice to have a bit more power available and more rugged axles.

I have 3. I am going to try to find out what other small WW2 scout cars have a similar wheelbase that might be good for conversions into other body types.

Here are two in my collection that are "possibles" for use of the Jeep in a conversion by scratch builders and the 3D guys. I wish I had this r/c model available when I built the 1/16 scale Staghound and Indian Pattern scout car models.

Can you expand on that a bit, Greg? I'm not quite sure what you mean.

I've been looking for a suitable driver file, but no luck yet. Driver's will come out much better once I get a resin printer.
