I just read this entire thread from the start. This is the best build thread I have read RC or full size in quite a while. Wow! Amazing hammer forming in miniature.
My last real job was restoring classics for a guy who had a model toy business on the side. Most of them came from china. Brass, lots of detail, cranes, dump trucks, tons of different bulldozers. The detail does not even come close to yours. Some of the bigger models sold for 30K! What you have created is beyond art. And far beyond the models I saw hand built by the folks who have all the jobs over there. Crazy good work.
I am building a 1/10 scale RC jeep ( 1st gen axial scorpion) with a canoe and all the junk in back. Custom lights with glass lenses the works. A replica of mine. I look at mine and then at yours and realize I still have a toy. Looking forward to more pictures. Wow.

Thanks alot KJ for the complements I do work hard at this becouse I love this hobby.. I dont know about it being all that special ,but it makes me happy!And im sure yours is looking good (its a jeep after all!)..
Well not much progress
I have hit a serious wall with this cab. I decided to attach the cab to the hoodsides to the headlight to the fenders so it all comes off as one piece.And what a pain in the rear it been...I think I have it figured out I willl build a inner steel frame structure that attaches all the pieces together I will start on it inm the morning.but heres what I have done this morning.
