Those are great color choices, the wagon especially. I think maybe that but with a used/faded look. Here is where I am at right now with the willys. Still have to finish the front fenders where they wrap down alongside the grill, but all in all it's close. Here's a pic.

Looking great. As far as paint goes, I would stay with a weathered two-tone look. Personally I wouldn't go with black but that's just me.

great progress on the body!
All the color suggestions I posted were intended to be 'weathered', not new looking.

My favorite is also the white/red wagon...

top notch work on the body. can't wait to see it done and in it's environment.

There is one of these that roams around here in Pittsburgh, it is opwned by an old guy that has probably had it forever.. It is a faded out original red, with some wear spots showing through to the primer.. they are in the usual spots... as well as a few shiny spots where the oils from ones hands have polished it a bit... maybe that is they way to go. wish I had a pic of it...

Will try to get a mock up photo tonight for ya, after I finish the fenders. Faded Red and cream is the color I am going to use. Would love to see a lexan version of this because it will break if hit hard enough against something, just like any hard body. Thanks again for the compliments.

That's probably one of the coolest rc's I have ever seen, can't wait to see this finished.

What type of suspension is going under it?

I built it to go on my Hilux highlift, I have some ideas on wheels, got some rc4wd tires, scale shocks, etc. Will hopefully post some pics here soon. My extended can blackfoot body just looked to small on the highlift chassis.

Wow....I think you are about to set a new threshold to reach. I am truly in awe of you guys that can do this. I am about to start on my first scaler and this will really inspire me.
