I needed an idea for these "hooks" (?):




They are all over the cab,inside also. My logical way to do them was in metal but i needed a bunch. Already did ones for a 1/6 willys but were bigger and only 4 of them..

So I tried to model and 3d print them . Are a bit small but the printer handled well

Are a bit rough but sanding and paint will improve

M548 carry a set of tools on the front. Sledgehammer,shovel, picaxe and axe

Started with the sledgehammer:









I think the shovel exceed my skill level...let's see




Also worked on the rear section, that small door to the cargo area














the paint will do wonders

Don't forget the indent in the left rear lower body for the fuel fill cap.

Don't worry, it's in the making


For now:
















glued the roof and did the opening of the hatch












A splash of color to see how it looks




I have the rear lights, but they'll be painted separately. The d-ring shackles were designed by me and printed in one piece but they move freely

also got to take care of those scratches

Thanks! I think you will like what will be over that opening

Well, when the windows were cut, didn't notice that the real ones weren't square. Small detail but bothered me ...





So...










Another job was making the hooks for the canvas. Was thinking in buying those tiny hooks for bras but then, i preferred to do only to see how it could look

Looks good, are you going to bend it a tad to the right?
