1/18 Jeep conversion: US WWII to post war Cdn

This is actually a commission build. The customer presented me with a fully assembled and painted US WWII Jeep. I'm guessing it's from 21st Century Toys, or a similar company. He has requested that I make the Jeep look like a post war Cdn vehicle in Germany, and has supplied a few ref pics for me to go on. He has also requested that I take the supplied base, and make it look like the concrete apron that the Jeep's used to be parked on. Only downside is that he wants the vehicle left clean.

Here's what it looked like when I got it:


And here is what he would like it to look like once I'm done:



An interesting project to say the least.

I started off by taking the vehicle apart, so that I can make the necessary conversions, and prepare the parts for paint.



I went ahead and painted the base as well.


I am fortunate enough to be friends with the owner/operator of the now defunct Quartermaster's Depot, so I was able to have some custom decals made up last night.


And now, let the fun part begin......

Cheers,

Kevin
