I will post some pics of the wheels that are going on it. As far as the tranny, it is smack dab against the hood right now so no raising will happen:-(. I have a few ideas though to get the tranny higher. Will keep you posted.

thats a huge tranny, same deal w/mine almost makes ya wanna just toss a r2 in there

This body is amazing! if only you could just dip it in some sort of resin to make it super durable... ahh in a perfect world... anyways AWESOME job with the styrene, truley amazing! "thumbsup"

F-150Highlift 11-17-2008 10:45 AM

Ordered the lenses and buckets, still waiting on the hummer wheels to arrive. I am going to have to paint it at work (to cold in home garage) so I will post some more pics soon....

scale808 11-18-2008 02:45 AM

cant wait to see the finished product
 
Dude, i cant stop lookin at this build...this is one of the best styrene work i've seen yet..."thumbsup"

F-150Highlift 11-19-2008 06:38 PM

Hummer wheels arrived and are I already got them modified to look like steel wheels that came on a stock willys. They look good. Taking the body to work with me tomorrow to paint it's first coat. Then I'm putting the second color on and then the aging process starts. Will get some pics up when I get new batteries for the camera.

slobin3d 11-19-2008 09:41 PM

sick:shock: you are seriously talented. how big are your lenses for the lights? I might have something that would work for it"thumbsup"

obijuan 11-19-2008 10:13 PM

wow that is ridiculously impressive work. bravo!
i hate to ask this but please tell me youre losing the highlift drivetrain for something a little less gaudy?

ColquittCustom405 11-19-2008 11:11 PM

I agree... you need to PTO that thing. I'm surprised. The drawing in the first post made me doubt you. I was like; "Yeah right....there's no way it will look like that" I was wrong. Sorry. Looks like the real deal to me.:)

F-150Highlift 11-20-2008 07:24 PM

I totally understand, when I showed the drawing to my girlfriend, she just looked at me like "yeah right". I am planning on the willys wagon next and I drew up some scale drawings of the 70's jeep pickups with the wagoneer front end. I am going to build these as well.

You're gonna build one of the old Gladiator trucks! Sweet.

F-150Highlift 11-20-2008 07:46 PM

Yep, the gladiator truck is sweet and my step dad owns the 1:1 version so doing this one will be easy.

Harley 11-20-2008 08:03 PM

It appears that the left front fender is about a 3/32" too high. I suggest starting over on the front end to fix the problem.





But seriously, even with all the time in the world I wouldn't be able to come up with something like that. Amazing job!

F-150Highlift 11-20-2008 08:27 PM

Hah hah, it is very close, too close to measure. I need some damn batteries to show you guys new pics! Will get some posted soon.

seven.two 11-21-2008 06:35 PM

if i didnt see the build thread, i wouldnt believe it. pretty amazing work.

F-150Highlift 11-21-2008 08:33 PM

Thanks, more pics to come this weekend.

Mongo 11-21-2008 10:45 PM

Can't wait to see them.

You gots some mad styrene skills dude :shock: perhaps the pabst blue ribbon has something to do with your styrene mastery , i think i found my beer of choice 8)

jeremyc 11-22-2008 07:21 AM

truely amazing.. great work... "thumbsup"

F-150Highlift 11-22-2008 08:27 PM

These are the last photos I took before paint, it has the modified hummers on it with bic pen cap hubs (they look good I think and were cheap!), glass, and a driver from a blackfoot that I had laying around. There is no room for a full interior so looks like "Ramblin Ron" will do. I am going to black out the entire chassis, and paint the shocks black with black boots. The paint is going to be pale yellow and white, with the wheels getting the same treatment. Saw a pic of a 1:1 and it looked great. It is in paint now so will post pics soon.

You are 1 sick guy..i love your work.."thumbsup"

Wible90 11-23-2008 07:52 AM

:shock: Wow.... How many hours into styrene work?

BmwM3_Evo 11-23-2008 03:41 PM

Holy crap, i didnt even know it was possible to build something soo realistic from scratch with styrene :O.

You have some talent sir, some talent :).

Chris

F-150Highlift 11-23-2008 05:03 PM

I would say there is about 20 to 25 hours in the body alone. I hope this thing looks good with my paint choices, I ditched the yellow today, didn't look right. Went to the store today to find more paint and I found this awesome blue so instead of yellow and white, I'm going with blue and cream two tone. Will post pics when it's done.

AWESOME work! I think the blue and white would look good also.

Nacho 11-23-2008 05:34 PM

WOW...awesome body work! You have some great skills "thumbsup"

Post up a shot of how you did those wheels!

Cant wait to see it done 8)

F-150Highlift 11-23-2008 05:55 PM

This is the front wheel, removed the outer lugs and made some hubs from bic pen caps. They look like a regular steel wheel when you remove the lugs.

flatfender 11-24-2008 05:10 AM

absolutely amazing

rockwalker 11-24-2008 12:38 PM

hot dam
 
that's beautiful a true work of art. keep up the good work

pantablo 11-24-2008 12:43 PM

such nice work-how did you remove the lugs on the wheels?

F-150Highlift 11-24-2008 03:39 PM

I just took a number 16 hobby blade, and cut them close them down close and then sanded the remaining off. Then wet sanded. Got the primary color done today at work (blue now) and it turned out awesome. Waiting 24 hours and then doing the cream two-tone tomorrow. I am going to have to take a vote on wheather to leave this thing shiney or weather it. Will post some pics tonight.

akguanja 11-24-2008 03:50 PM

lets see it shiney first, but i just dont think it should be shiney! lol

F-150Highlift 11-24-2008 05:39 PM

These are pics of the wheels after paint, and the first coat of blue for the main body. The fenders, roof, and door inserts will be cream like the wheels. Going to do that tomorrow.
