Heres something i have been working on,

a 1977 Jeep CJ-7, making it into a hunting jeep

I cut off the rear fenders, and the winch has real steel cable in it, " i used steel fishing line leader"

this is where i am so far.

I like it!, I'm assuming that it's "Bring your own milkcrate" for seating? :-) I think I've hunted that 40!

Question - What's the plan for the hood retainer "T" latches? On some kits this falls flat and isn't enhanced at all. What are your plans for them?

The rest is classic JT work

Nice work so far james your weathering looks good, its always nice to see a change from all the shiny paint, are you going to put it on a base with ground work.

Very nice work so far James. Love the subtle weathering.
Don't forget to put a 6-pack in the stowage

Hey James...nice work. Is this something you own. As for a base, well how about something like the front wheels sitting in a small trickle of a stream, setting like fall/spring, leaves, sticks and twigs. Some Hunting and Fishing gear...and oh yeah like Jasper said lots of beer. Good looking jeep James

Thanks guys!
no its nothing I own in real life lol... some good ideas for a Dio though thanks!

Well a Hunting Jeep wouldn’t be complete with out a rifle.
So I made one from aluminum tubing and a popsicle stick.

James the straps look great, now you need some scale beer cans maybe a hunting knife, lots of junk.
