This is a project that was made possible thanks to the incredible Martin/Magic2002. He designed in 3D this very cool Jeep chassis that is made to fit the WW2 body and made it available through Shapeways. Drivetrain components come from a Losi Mini Rock Crawler. Some parts have to be home made but they are pretty basic, like the links for example.
I used a WW2 bodyshell with some slight mods, as well as driver from Toykid and a head from Matt Hicks. I didn't have the NOS bottle, so used a WW head as a helmet painted in the original colors as a tribute.
I also managed to make working head and taillights.
Right now, it's not a runner yet because it has no driveshafts. I wasn't able to modify the stock ones to fit (they have to be very very short) but Magic2002 is currently working on some parts that should be available very soon through his Shapeways store.
I really enjoyed working on this cool little Jeep and can't wait to take it for a spin!
