The past years I bought 3 good used Wild Willy’s. I had sorted all the parts in good, medium and bad quality for quit a while but never build one. Last December I finally finished one with all the ‘good’ parts.

Had to spray the body, because even the ‘good’ one had lots of scratches and of course a broken grill…. From then on I decided to improvise an let go of the box-art examples. I used Tamiya AS-19 and some spare decals.

First time I painted a Willy and it’s clear I need some more practise, but luckily it’s easy to swap for another try.

Thank you for your kind comments. While looking at the pictures I thought that it might need some extra details. The orangs lights above the rear wheel arches, paint the clips at the bonnet. And I would like the Hella decals at the roof lights instead of these 'Brite lite' ones.
