1/50 Rick Steffers Jeep

I built my Rick Steffers memorial Jeep in my preferred 1/50 vehicle scale. I used a cropped photo of Rick from 2012 as part of the "chassis" of my model. I also played around with Photoshop a bit on the windows and tires. For the benefit of others who might want to build this model, I'll point out a few errors: the left side of the hood is incorrect (part of a star is missing). This can be fixed by mirroring the right hood side if you have Photoshop, etc. Part numbers 5 and 8 are transposed on the instruction sheet. That being said, the model held up well to the enlargement, with all the pieces still fitting precisely together, color patterns matching, etc.

I don't always build models, but when I do... I prefer paper. Keep your scissors sharp, my friends.

The part and 8 error would explain why the grill on mine looks janky.

Yours turned out great!

Respect the Paper, RESPECT IT!

Don - Did you take any photographs of your construction process for the chassis? I am trying to figure out how parts 6 and 7 fit with parts 5 and 8 (or 8 and 5) and how part 9 attaches to the two wheel well assemblies (5 or 8 with 6 and 8 or 5 with 7).

Don, too
