armourerdoug - new WW2 jeep project

Post by armourerdoug » Sun Dec 19, 2010 8:22 pm

well after having my jeep shot to shit, ,,,,hole in rear vynil window and damaged rad, thought i would try and make a T25 E3 armoured jeep, so far have spent a total of 25 hours on it, all going well and to plan! :yahoo:
have lots of patterns to make for the pannels, but am confident it will look pretty much like the original and will have a working Airsoft Browning .50 cal mounted too when i make it, untill then the .30 cal will suffice! :lol:

Nice job. looking forward to seeing this finished. Tell me, out of interest and pardon my ignorance, is there an engine cooling issue here?

Good luck with it :thumbsup:

got about 4 hours done today, front pannels pretty much sorted so primed them :thumbsup: need toget the paint off of the front fenders to prime, then fit the brush guards and lights once they are primed too.
then will start on the dash and windscreen design and move on to the side doors
