« Part 3: Undercarriage Part 4 of Willy’s jeep series Part 5: Prototype support system for canvas top »

As usual, things need a bit of cleaning up, but here is where my experiments regarding details have taken me thus far.


Gas , clutch and brake.


From the back seat


From the passenger seat.

Canvas seat covers.

Well, there are some of my ideas for some of the small details and the introduction of other textures in my wood models.

KJ, your jeep is looking really good. I just love the seats and the canvas on the gear shifters. That’s thinking outside the box. How did you make the handles for the shifters? Can’t wait to see what’s next.

I like that you are coming up with so many interesting details. I’m sure this will be a big plus on your model.

How did you make the handles for the shifters?

Jason, after a few different versions, I finally settled on 16 gage olive green coated wire and 7mm black glass beads. Both of which I got from Hobby Lobby. I did try soaking a 1/8 dowel, the smallest I had, but I could not get the Bend I was after and it look over sized anyway.
