I knew it! I knew those Methods were for a build! They look good, too.

Yes, I realize the paint flaked off the front near the grille. I actually like that. I'm going to leave it.

Some interior Junk has been added as well. Not done yet, just getting a feel for the color before I start on the detail work. Coming together!

Build looks awesome so far! What are you using for carpet in the interior?

Thanks, sticky-backed felt from Michael's. Works great and comes in a few different colors.

That's exactly where my 1:1 started to flake. The glove box looks dead on too.

Accuracy is my cake.

Started detailing the interior. I'm chuffed again. I should probably go to the doctor and make sure that isn't a contagious condition.

looks good, you should get some AR44 axle sets under that thing!

Man this thing is Rad! 3d printing is taking scale details to the next level.

I didn't. I used Axial VVD's and Vanquish steering bits. These VVD's: Axial AX10 SCX10 Competition Universal Joint Drive Shaft Set (1 Pair)

Thanks! Yes, 3D printing definitely has it's place.

that interior is awesome! is there a downloadable file for someone with their own printer to use? or was it purchased from shapeways or similar?

A friend local to me made it. He didn't really do a huge run of them, but if you really want one, PM me and I'll see if he'd do another.

Man that's looking pretty, I was thinking something proper and wearing a bowtie for when my scx2 shows up, but I do have one of these bodies waiting for something to happen....

Thanks sir. Cheby's are nice, but Jerps are for kids.

I kinda sorta forgot all about this build. But um, here it is... ALMOST DONE!

I'm quite pleased with the end result. The 3D printed interior fit perfectly, and looks good all painted up and installed. The details are what really sold me on this body and it is a pretty decent replication of the chopped Cherokee I modelled it after.
