Thanks guys , preciate it !!

Two things , one , still needs more weathering , tires etc. Two , I've got to get the field fab guys that rigged the stretcher racks to extend the trailer ring . As of now making right hand turns are ok , try to make a left and the utility box on the trailer barks into the rear stretcher rack . Poor engineering and design on my part , off to the shop .

One more thing , I have the tail light cable hook transposed with the front tie down hook for the canvass . The hook for the tail light cable should be next to the hand brake . Oops .

Again: looks terrific. The only question I have: is PSP plating that thick?

Thanks Erwin , yeah the real stuff is only about a quarter inch [ 6.4mm ] thick . That's my fault for not noticing it and for trusting a resin manufacture to " get it right " . Hey , silver lining ,
most of it won't be seen under the stretchers .
Jerry , hey man what can I say , thanks for the high praise bro , means a lot !!!
The kit is actually one of the worst kits ever . Tamiya 35015 , the jeep and trailer one . The tub sits too low on the frame making the distance between the tub and front fenders to the wheels too little . Makes the jeep look like it's loaded with a tank . The same era Italeri kit [ the jeep I did with the 50 ] was a better kit .

Next I'll be doing a Bronco jeep [ which looks awesome in the box ] for the radio JASCO jeep .

“Chopsticks” emoji to resemble tweezers and “pinching fingers” to resemble holding them. I guess there’s still a bunch of emoji code that won’t translate between Mac and PC.

Merry Christmas!🎄(Christmas tree emoji)

Well, I stopped assuming for some time now, but if it is covered (specially the edges) the problem is not that big.
I remember Verlinden used to have a set of PSP...

And Merry X-mas to you too!!!

Wow, what a set up Cheyenne, I love it! I don't think I've ever seen a jeep used in a scenario like this, incredible work! The amount of detail you're adding is impressive. Looks like you did your homework Brotha.

Ruck On Bby!

Cheyenne....you sir are an amazing artist. I have been a fan of Jerry Rutman's for a while now. Now I am a fan of you. Your craftsmanship is amazing. This is a Master class on diorama building. You and Jerry should get together and create a book featuring your various creations. I would buy it. I have just about every modeling book there is, not that they've helped me any with my craft. I would buy your book as, I'm sure, would many others.
This is simply stunning work. Thank you for sharing.

Merry Christmas Jeff and thanks fer the compliment .
Wouldn't even know about how to get published , sounds like a cool idea though and as long as it could be done , sittin on my butt right here . I've worked all my life from age 12 , I'm 67 now , might not want to turn a hobby into a job . Right now I build when I want to , other than that I sit at my Tiki bar in the yard watching the woods and the wetlands drinkin booze out of a coconut .
