And a woman needs her bag with her offcourse. So a leftover from the Kelly Osbourne action figure came in handy.

Some styrene, a spring from a pen, a small print and some painting and well, Wild Wanda can now tell Willy where to drive to.

Body time. Let's start with a fresh and new Axial Wraith Jeep Wrangler Poison body.

That's a nice looking body. That I painted black.....

Why paint a brand new body. Wel there is method in this madness. I had other plans for the looks of this body. And i needed a black undercoat for the FreqesKinz  Axial Wraith Jeep Body Painted True Fire wrap.

First testrun. It performed fantastic. Did break one of the shocks, so new ones are ordered.

It was a fun build and nice to add some Wild Willy parts and drivers to it. Another build done. Hope you like it even if it is not a full Tamiya.

I like the attention to detail, particularly where incorporating Wild Willy parts into the build was concerned. You have one fantastic-looking machine for your fantastic efforts :)
