Here are some update pictures of my two jeeps:
First is a detail shot of the .50 cal MG. This gun is a combination of parts from 3 sets. The barrel, shield and rear sight is from the discontinued Eduard set 35185. I rolled the perforated PE part around a brass tube. The resin parts are from the Legends SAS set and the other brass parts are from the current Eduard set 35797. Here is the result.
Here are shots of the dashboards:
Discontinued Eduard set
And current Eduard set
Additional information on the dashboards, the two bumps above the dials are parts that I removed from the Tamiya kit dashboards. I glued them here. The three knobs on the left side are a bit oversized but I preferred to have them here rather than a flat surface. These were taken from a set of 1/350 resin ship bollards.
Here is a test fit of the beads as headlights, this time behind the grill.
Here are shots of the jeep loads. A one piece resing part from the Legends set
And bits of Tamiya and Legend parts. I am not too concerned about the detail of the Tamiya parts since additional loads will cover these.
Here are all around shots of the two jeeps with dry fitted parts.
Some more additional parts and I will be apply primer.
I just realized that this post is picture heavy and I may exceed my daily Photobucket data allotment. Just in case the pictures are not viewable, here is a PDF version of this post.https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw3enSRLKgU6UzJEZ1l0NXRqMlE/view?usp=sharing
