Well a guy from my work retired today and as a leaving gift my boss asked if I could make up a little thing for him with a jeep on it. I said yes and sent him off to the model shop to get a diecast model of a willys only they sold the last one the day before so he got a 1/24 italeri kit for me to use :unsure: so at six last night I started the first kit in two'ish years now with the time limit I missed a few bits out the carpet monster got two bits and trying to dry brush for the first time at 1.00 in the morning was hard and trying some weathering that I have been trying on some old models in preparation for getting back in to modelling wasn't easy either. But I got to bed at 2.00 back up at 6.00 to fit decals before work and then clear and fit to base at lunch time all up 10 hours. I think it looks ok my dry brushing and weathering needs abit more work but hopefuly longer build time will help next time. So remember first in two years so be gentile on me.

I go along with the others Yak. Record breaking stuff and an excellent result.
Looks like a good kit. You recommend it?
Well done again.

Yep that's some good work the for both reasons, time and having not built anything for a wee while. It's like riding a bike though it's amazing how quick you pick it up again.

Thank you all for your kind words its definitely made me more confident about trying to make a dent in my stash and tomorrow i plan on trying to revamp a couple of already made kits and then on to some new ones in the coming weeks.

Yes the old bugger was nearly crying so it made the effort worth it to see him so happy with what I managed to do for him he's a good mate. He has a 1941 GPW and just loves every thing about the jeeps he's going to be doing two days a week resto'ing jeeps for friend.

Wally, Yes it was a nice kit needed a bit of flash cleaned off the parts nothing to bad and as I had little time on my hands I glued the hood shut but theres a good amount of detail in there also no putty went in to it if the time was there wouldn't be a lot needed anyway. apart from four or five 1/24 cars I've only ever made 1/72 ww2 aircraft but I wouldn't mind getting one for my self one day.
