Here is one of my new wooden handcrafted Jeep models. The work on this jeep is phenomenal. The jeep with the trailer attached is 24" long. This is now in my office inside a display case. That's why the photos are crummy.

Thanks for looking.

Ronnie

Those of you familiar with my jeep collection know that I am constantly adding to it. I recently found this small Dinky Toys Jeep on eBay. It, as you can see was in bad shape. I did a search and found out that I could buy replacement tires. I purchased the jeep and ordered some tires. Then I cleaned the jeep....stripped the jeep....polished the jeep....washed it again....then painted it. After it dried I added some details to the painting. Hope you all like it. It was enjoyable to do. Here are some photos from before...in the middle ....and the after.

It's a PTO (Power Take Off) for all sorts of agricultural equipment.

 

This model originally came in red or green, both with a black windshield. There's also a military version made for the US market, but that one is rare.

Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.

Thanks Lars. Mike it is like early MB said a PTO. The first post war jeeps were built with the farmer in mind.

It was a fun project. I picked up a Land Rover and will do the same to it. Beats sitting around watching tv.

Here are a couple of jeeps I've just added to the collection. The jeep wagon is a newly made Diecast model but the old CJ5 is an old model that was given to Willys executives. At least that is what I have read.

Thanks.

Ronnie

Here is a really cool all hand made jeep. I picked this up earlier this year and may have shown it but not on this thread. This thing is amazing.

Thanks.

Ronnie

I think that's a Danbury Mint. There's also a version with a multiple rocket launcher.

Yeah I think that is the Danbury Mint jeep. It came with the .50 or the canvas top. You could display it either way. I have two. So I display one with the gun and one with the top up. I also have the rocket launcher version. Here is a photo. The best I have at the moment.

Thanks.

Ronnie

The Danbury Mint is a very nice model. Another very good one is the 1/20 (I think) slatgrill from Tamiya. It's a pre-built model, not a kit and quite rare.
